The silhouettes of hands…

…were flying in the doorway during a rainy day. Two deaf brothers had contacted us and traveled 2 hours to our closest program to learn sign language for the first time. They had their own home signs between themselves and their hearing sister, but this was the first time they were learning to communicate in a common language with others. Of utmost importance to learn first, their names! Deaf who didn’t know their own names several years earlier were now showing these newbies how to fingerspell their names and giving them their unique name sign.
