Sound Advice with the Osmonds

Embracing Who You Are

When Justin Osmond was born, it wasn’t common to screen newborns for hearing loss.  It wasn’t until he was almost two years old that doctors told Merrill and Mary Osmond that their son had profound hearing loss.  After being fitted for bulky hearing aids, Justin began the long process of trying to catch up with his peers.
Along the way, he became aware of his deaf accent and longed to sound “normal” like other kids.  His mom taught him to pay more attention to WHO he was, not WHAT he was.  
Justin doesn’t just call his parents his heroes, he calls them his “hear-oes”.
