Audrey was an ordinary girl she came from a working class background and was adored by her parents who had tried for years to have a baby without much success, in those days there were no tests no quick fixes as is Today.
Audrey's parents were humble and enjoyed married life very much, her Father was a Carpenter and mum was stay at home, her dad did not make a lot of money but he was really gifted and made things with his own hands.
All in all the family were happy, Audrey was a clever child she managed to walk at an early age and for her years she was advanced, one thing that was slow was her speech, she was not able to talk as well as the other children, when she started Nursery the teachers became concerned and called in her parents.
Audrey's mum knew something was not right as she was very behind in her ability to talk but she just put it down to the fact she was quicker at adapting to other things and never thought any more of it.
Audrey smiled and when she did she lit up a room, she never cried, when she did it was only through hunger, she was contented with herself.
After a few tests with a speech therapist it was discovered Audrey was profoundly deaf, she could not hear anything at all, the therapist tested her on various levels of speech but Audrey did not respond to any of them.
Pretty soon Audrey was given hearing aids to aid her hearing.
After two months she began to respond and her speech developed a hundred fold, her parents were still in shock because they never knew their child was deaf.
Pretty soon it became clear that Audrey would never be able to hear one hundred percent.
Her parents soon adapted to sign language having personal lessons from a sign expert.
Audrey excelled at school and even though she was disabled her aptitude amazed her parents, Audrey went on to complete her doctorate and soon became a fine doctor.

The moral of the story.

Disablement does not impair success.:)
