This is a project about the lives of Julianne Osakowicz and her family. Julianne is one year old and has been profoundly deaf since birth. Since then Julianne's parents, Keri and Mike, have found themselves caught in the debate surrounding cochlear implants - on one side there is the Deaf community that sees it as cultural genocide to implant a deaf child and on the other are hearing parents who want to communicate with their deaf children. Julianne's parents made the decision of  giving her cochlear implants and have been learning sign language along side their one year old daughter.
