Deaf Adopted Child To Force On Cochlear Implant

Deaf News: Family flies Deaf child to Italy for surgery not approved in U.S.

LUBBOCK, TX -- From an onlooker’s perspective, Anna Burch is like any other 5-year-old. She’s friendly, energized and quite interactive. But if you call her name, she won’t respond. She’s not being rude. She simply can’t hear you.
