A Silent World

Yu Han was just 1 when he lost his hearing. Second-hand hearing aids soon broke and expensive therapy wasn’t enough. Friends like you answered his parents’ desperate call for help. They want to thank you! Read Transcript


LIKE MOST 4-YEAR-OLDS, JAHON

ASKS HIS MOM LOTS OF

QUESTIONS.

WHY DO BIRDS FLY?

WHY IS THE FLOWER RED?

BUT I DON'T MIND.

I JUST LOVE TO HEAR HIS

VOICE.

Terry: THERE WAS A TIME

JAHON COULDN'T SPEAK OR

HEAR.

WHEN HE WAS ONE, HE WAS

GIVEN SOME MEDICINE TO CURE

A FEVER, AND THAT

PERMANENTLY DAMAGED HIS

HEARING.

NOW HE WOULD NOT EVEN

SMILE.

AND WHEN I CLAPPED MY HANDS,

HE DID NOT RESPOND.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.

MY BABY WAS DEAF.

I WAS SO SOARE WORRIED

ABOUT HIS FUTURE.

WHO WOULD TAKE CARE OF HIM

AFTER I WAS GONE?

THE OTHER KIDS JOKED

ABOUT MY BROTHER NOT BEING

ABLE TO HEAR.

IT WAS SO HARD TO WATCH.

I CRIED.

Terry: THE CHIES SPENT

THEIR WHOLE LIFE SAVINGS TO

HELP THEIR SON.

THEY BOUGHT HIM A USED

HEARING AID AND SENT HIM TO

SPEECH THERAPY.

BUT AFTER A FEW MONTHS, THE

SECONDHAND HEARING AID FELL

APART.

I KNOW MY SON WAS RELYING

ON ME, SO I WORKED VERY HARD

TO PAY FOR REPAIRS ON THE

HEARING AID.

BUT IT WAS NOT LONG BEFORE

IT TOTALLY BROKE.

WE DID NOT HAVE ANYMORE

MONEY TO BUY A NEW ONE.

AND BY THE TIME WE SAVED UP,

I NO JAHON WOULD HAVE BEEN

TOO OLD AND IT WOULD BE TOO

LATE.

MY BOY WOULD LIVE IN A WORLD

WITHOUT SOUND FOREVER.

Terry: THEN JAHON WAS

INTRODUCED TO CBN.

WE MADE SURE HE GOT THE BEST

HEARING AIDS POSSIBLE, AND

WE PAID FOR THIS FINAL YEAR

IN LANGUAGE SCHOOL.

SOON HE'LL BE ABLE TO ENTER

KINDERGARTEN WITH THE OTHER

CHILDREN HIS AGE.

MY BROTHER IS TALKING A

LOT NOW, AND USING MORE AND

MORE WORDS ALL THE TIME.

AND IT MAKES ME SMILE.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US

IN A MOST DIFFICULT TIME IN

OUR LIVES.

YOU HAVE BROUGHT US ALL

JOY AND HOPE, AND YOU HAVE

GIVEN JAHON A BRIGHT

FUTURE.
