Narrated by Lilit Mkrtchyan, Stella´s Mom.
Hello, my name is Lilit Mkrtchyan, I am Stella’s Mom. I live with my family in Yerevan, Armenia. I have three daughters, Stella is one of the twins. She was born on the 28th of September, 2005 with normal hearing capacity. I felt myself the happiest mother in the world with my 3 daughters and thought that nothing could prevent my happiness as the most important thing in the world is health.
In August, 2008, Stella got ill, she was diagnosed neurotoxicity. The medicine she took for recovering had side effects. After a long way of recovery she started not to react on noises anymore. We took her for other examinations in Arabkir and Erebouni Clinics in Armenia. A disaster after all when she was diagnosed 4th grade sensorineural hearing loss. I couldn’t believe that my lovely daughter became deaf.
