- Implanted AgeToddler or PreschoolerHearing LossSince BirthImplantedBothWe are Greg and Stephanie Hawkins, and we are the parents of two fantastic kiddos who happen to each have CI’s. Max is 7 and has had his since he was just a year old. Claire is 4 and has had one since she was one, and she received her 2nd when she was 3. The CI has proven to be a life-changing technology for our children. With the CI, even though both of them have a profound hearing loss, they are listening and speaking communicators. That is amazing!!
