When you are told you’ll never hear your child utter a single word, hearing them defy doctor’s expectations and tell you that they love you must sound all the sweeter. In today’s Daily Mirror, mum Lydia tells how her children were diagnosed with vocal cord paralysis and, fitted with a tracheotomy each, the chances of her kids ever being able to speak were unlikely.
Lydia’s kids had other ideas. In this incredible story, she explains how they learned to say ‘I love you’ (and many other words!) despite their diagnosis and despite their tracheostomies.
