Our Deaf Adoption Journey

I’m Just Askin’!

February 18, 2011

One of the most popular questions we’re asked is about our goal of adopting a deaf child.  When thinking about adoption, we tried to look at what skills we had to bring to the table.  Of course, I had my charm, good looks, and great sense of humor.  Lauri knows sign language.  Her second oldest brother is deaf and she learned how to sign long before she learned how to talk.  That certainly explains why she always is moving her hands when she’s telling a story.  We now have a deaf sister-in-law and a deaf niece and nephew.  Their kids are all really great at signing and they’re a real joy to watch.  Here’s a few pics from a recent program they did at their church.
