With a degree in journalism, Valli Gideons' work has reached millions of people across multiple platforms. Her engaged community made up of parents and leaders in the field of the deaf and hard of hearing, she is passionate about her role as advocate and champion of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Valli opens her story about raising two children with hearing loss by saying simply, "My baby was the first deaf person I ever met."
Our conversation explores her amazing and unique journey of motherhood (and being a military spouse!) and how both the hardships and joys of her life have shaped her into the woman she is today, and inspired her to share her story in her new book, Through the Fog: Navigating life’s challenges while raising kids with hearing loss .
