Before our children were born, they had a special conversation with God. They asked Him to give them parents that would care for them, help them with their special needs and most of all love them more than anything else. With that we were chosen as parents to these beautiful children. And for that we are honored and forever grateful. 
Thank you Emma & Harrison for choosing us.

Olive Designs has arrived with a CI shirt for proud moms! www.oliveeverything.com

This is the official homepage of the Olive Designs website. We are starting out with "mom" shirts. Eventually we'll expand to baby items and tote bags! The mission behind the brand is to thankfully appreciate motherhood and all the joys it brings by paying it forward.

You'll notice that two of the items are charity items. This means that a percentage of the proceeds will go to charity. If you look a little harder, you'll notice the shirt in the upper right hand corner is also a charity item. One that is near and dear to my heart and to many of you too who are reading this blog. That shirt titled 'moms always listen with their heart" is the cochlear implant shirt! The butterflies float along a swirl (or cochlea) creating the word mom. But the best part is that anyone can wear it!

We are starting with long sleeve for the fall market and will eventually add more and also have short sleeve. There are actually 6 others in long sleeve that are not yet complete. Very exciting! So buy buy buy! Proceeds from the purchase of the cochlear implant shirts go to The Let Them Hear Foundation!

You can place orders at info@oliveeverything.com or call (612) 961-0413

  1. Hi - I linked to your blog from Deaf Village. I am wondering how long it took before Emma started really conversing? Our son was also implanted around 18 months and now may be facing blindness as well. We are still in the labeling stage, not many words, and we are anxious to develop communication. I realize she's been hearing for nearly 4 years, but when would you say you first would have called her "fully oral?" Thanks for your input.

  2. Mary Beth,
    Thank you for your response. We are working hard with William, too. I just can't help but wonder sometimes if he's doing as well as he should be, although he seems to be doing very well. He's been hearing almost 8 months now. He has a few consistent words and a lot of babbling, but he for sure hears and knows his name and several one word commands. It is a big difference from before he was implanted. I guess with all of the other stuff going on, maybe I'm just getting antsy!
