This gorgeous baby girl is the daughter of my wonderful niece, Mia.
Her name is Bliss. She's bright, smiles easily and is adored by her family and likewise. She is hard of hearing in one ear, that’s why she wears a hearing aid.
“Is she wearing Bluetooth?” a man recently asked my niece. Mia much more gracious than I would be under the circumstance politely answered, “No.”
“While it was one of dumbest questions, it really tickled me, ” she said. “He was visibly embarrassed, it was an awkward elevator ride after that.” Some have even asked how did they discover she was deaf at such a young age. Mia explains to them that Bliss isn’t deaf; she’s hard of hearing. She feels that answering these questions gives people who really don’t mean any harm, information. I applaud her sensitivity and patience.
I know that children can say the darndest things, but adults sure can ask the stupidest questions. What do you think?
