Actually, it's kinda useless, considering I can only carry a conversation in English! As for the Greek alphabet, well pledging a sorority had one good outcome, I guess.

Christy - then you will have no problem communicating with me if you know the alphabet in ASL

THats great that you are interested in learning ASL Angela - I am profoundly deaf and its always nice to meet people who can sign. I am fluent in both ASL and NZSL. Sometimes I forget and revert back to NZSL while signing to americans and they get confused.

This is really interesting.

That would be cool! But the alphabet is the only thing I know, except for the sign for bread (my college roommate taught herself the Lord's Prayer in sign language) and "You crazy devil".

My mother taught at the Maryland School for the Deaf for several years. She wasn't deaf herself, but she became very good friends with her sign teacher, who was. It was kind of hard not to pick it up.
post #199 of 228
I am profoundly deaf

That's so sad Kellye , I'm glad you are still able to hear all the voices of TCS'ers

If it's not a rude question. How does your little boy cope with a deaf Mummy?

post #200 of 228
Sam, dont be sad - I live life to the fullest as much as I can - I can do anything except hear - thats the motto of a lot of deaf people.
My little lad is great, he can sign and talk and my family is great with support. My hubby is deaf and I know a lot of deaf people who have children and they cope really well, its amazing, some even become interpreters etc.
Deaf people have a culture of their own, really, and its quite fascinating. I have this great little book and one day I will have to post in here some aspects of it - a friend is borrowing it, but when I get it back, I will post, so you guys can get a heads up.
post #201 of 228
This made me smile.

I think it's really great that your Husband is deaf too, Your family sounds great! I like it also how the lil boy can sign as well, How cute is that?, I see you live a normal life! That's great.

Thanks for that Kellye. My Aunt has Polio(sp?) and I'm learning to live with that, BUT I have never met a fully deaf person.

Kudos to you my friend!

Ten Random Things about me.....

1. I am a middle child, but I never had the "middle Child syndrome"

3. I am a computer and math whiz!!

4. I have lived all over the united states but I have now lived in Alabama for over 11 years......which means that from the time I was born until I was 11 we moved quite a bit!!

6. I am a discovery channel/tlc fanatic!! I love watching documentaries...

7. My mother passed away from Cancer when I was 19 . One of the reason's why Jason and I are soo close...is that he moved in with me and my family while she was sick and helped out around the house...since my dad had to work long shifts...
