This week I’m only highlighting one story because it tickled me so much. I’ve taken classes and learned sign language on-and-off over the years, then a few years ago I worked with a great graphic designer who happened to be deaf. She was a lot of fun and was really patient teaching me sign language so we communicate.
We talked about work, kids, I even explained the technicalities of music to her once. She told me how frustrating it was attending school events not wanting t,o but occasionally needing her kids to interpret for her. It was a lot of pressure and a lot to ask of a child. Which is part of what makes this little girl so special.
- This KODA (Kid Of Deaf Adults) Signed Her Christmas Concert for her parents while the rest of the kids in her kindergarten class did all the cute little hand motions they learned. She’s adorable too! No one knew she was planning on interpret the songs for them, which makes it even more special, she just wanted to make sure her Mommy and Daddy enjoyed the show as much as everyone else did. I’m sure they did!
I think the next time they’re looking for someone to interpret for the deaf at a state funeral, they know who to call!
If you have any ideas or if you’d like to Guest Write The List, I would love to hear from you! Send me a note here and we’ll get you on the blog!
Have a great weekend everyone!
