I don't think deaf dogs need hearing companions. I have 4 deaf dogs of my own, and just recently adopted my only hearing dog - an older puppymill rescue Chihuahua who doesn't know and won't do any of the things my deafies have been taught to do. I really think if you can give your deaf baby your undivided attention for now it would be better for her. Get her trained, let her grow out of her upcoming adolescence and, once she's a little more mature, maybe get her a companion then. And who knows - you might even consider getting her a deaf companion. :)
