My nephew Brendan and his girlfriend Ashley

gave birth a few months a go to a beautiful

daughter named Ivy.

Ivy was born with with Meningitis,which has left

her deaf in one ear.

They are trying for a cochlear implant,but the nerve

may be damaged beyond repair

I wish I was a researcher,I wish I could find a cure

So people wouldn’t have to live in silence

Maybe I could be a magican and wave my magic

stick,travel the world,and cure people who are sick

I know that will never happen,and babies are born

deaf everyday

I hope that one day someday someone can unsilence

the silence

It is just another name for a cure

So just like the ivy that grows wild and free,my Ivy will

grow on you,she sure has grown on me

I love you Ivy
