A Million Dreams
Kari & Bernadette
So in all the turmoil and change of the last week, we wanted to bring a little song to cheer everyone up.
Kari has been practising this song for a number of weeks with her classmate Monica and been guided by Mr Fraser, her Teacher of the Deaf. Given our current "lockdown" Kari needed a stand in partner so taught Bernadette in the last 24hrs.
As many of you will know, since birth, Kari has severe, profound hearing loss and without the support of our family, our incredible NHS, and education staff, she would not be where she is today.
Words cannot express the love and gratitude for everyone who has helped and continues to help Kari on her learning journey;
All the staff at Granny Smiths Nursery, where our journey began
All the staff at St. Patrick's Primary School,
Margo, Michael, Amy & James at NHS Crosshouse Audiology Dept.
Louise Steel, NHS Speech & Language Therapy
Miss Fraser, ENT Consultant
Dr Holland, Paediatrician
Julie, Teacher of the Deaf
Emma & Pamela, BSL Ayrshire
Mr Kenny Fraser, Teacher of the Deaf at Ayrshire Hearing Impairment Service
without whom we would not have been able to pull this off!
A huge thanks to you all, we hope you have enjoyed our song and we can't wait to see you all again soon

I remember when Kari was born. She is an amazing girl, i have to admit to being in tears watching this. She deserves a great big round of applause herself. A great example of a good news story of NHS work at this time. XX
