Making Friends


Making friends with Deaf or Hard of Hearing people has been extremely helpful to our family’s quest to learn ASL for Adam’s sake. This day I was thrilled to finally meet Frankie’s friend Giovanni and Giovanni’s mom. Frankie has learned ASL along with us and has made friends with Giovanni who is Deaf. This is a big deal for us because Frankie and Giovanni can build a unique friendship. They can be a priceless example for Adam and the rest of us. It was also a pleasure to meet Giovanni’s mom- she has been a helpful resource for me because she is farther along the path of this journey. We are so grateful for their new friendship.
