Michael H.'s Story

Michael H.

When Michael H moved into a Shared Living home in Farmington that is supported by LEAP, he lost part of himself… sixty-eight pounds to be exact.

Just Imagine...

If you were born not able to hear...
Birds or Christmas Carols or your Momma say “I love you” in her tender sweet way.
Or to hear words of Praise...or Encouragement...or Reassurance.
OR...to explain why the doctor needs to do That to You.

Imagine living in total silence...no language...no words...
No way to speak, No one to speak to, No one to listen...
If you wanted to say...I’m scared or I’m lonely.
