Meet Blaine

Hometown:  Lewis Center, OH
Age:  2 ½ 
Diagnosis: Bilateral Profound Hearing Loss
Blaine’s journey with Nationwide Children’s Hospital began early as he failed his newborn hearing test leading to a diagnosis of profound hearing loss in both ears. Although he was born deaf, his family was thrilled to learn that he still had a chance to hear.

For his 1st birthday, he received his right cochlear implant and got his left one soon after. When they were turned on, Blaine was so excited to find out that everything made noise. Now, he has learned how to listen and speak and his doctors say he is already caught up to regular hearing kids. He loves music and being read to. He also loves learning American Sign Language. As his parents say, “After all he’s still deaf, it's just now he can hear!”
