“Why a deaf child?” That seems to be the question we’ve been asked the most so far. While it’s tempting to say that we’re just extra nice, the truth is that a deaf child is exactly what we want. It’s like a special order. I don’t know that I can quantify why exactly, but there is a certain culture within the deaf community that we find exciting. I have a lot to learn about it still, but I’m looking forward to it.
So far, Lauri is the only one that knows sign language, but I can type much faster than her. It’s only a matter of time before I catch up.
