Yura & I have decided to learn American Sign Language. In Ukraine, we attempted to learn Russian Sign Language (RSL) [yes, there are tons of different dialects of Sign Language – can you imagine that British SL & American SL are different?!].
We began sitting in the front left section during the 9am service at Brook Hills because that’s where the interpreter stands. The main interpreter, Kim, is a mom of nine. Three of their children are from China & also deaf.
We are really excited about learning a new language to teach to our son, in addition to Russian.
I am thankful for language. It makes people different & constantly gives a new & humbling perspective [trust me, I would know – I live in bilingual household!].
