What an incredible example of how language provides so much opportunity. Extremely unusual, both parents sign with Dariela at home and completely accept her, deafness and all! She got in the van yesterday and told me her mom was pregnant with a girl, her dog Rambo had died but her dog Star was ok and she was sad. She told me her dad was working planting coffee and her mom corrected her and said he was with the cows and she said oh yeah with the milk! In a country where most deaf don’t learn language until much later in life, this is truly a Christmas miracle! Grateful that we get to be part of giving a gift that cannot be wrapped, language!
