Tonight I'm going to a workshop on Cued Speech. I'm quite excited and interested to see the difference between Cued Speech and American Sign Language. ASL was my major in college for 3 years. Unfortunately, I did not finish out my last 1 1/2 year. I got too burnt out and changed my major (Occupational Therapy), of course that didn't work either, I ended up quitting school completely. Hopefully someday I will go back. Anyways, back to the main subject... I will let you all know what I think about the workshop. I have it tomorrow night and all day Saturday too.
You know, it's quite funny... both of my previous college majors have helped me out with my child. When I was taking sign language and learning how to become an interpreter, I often thought to myself that I would someday adopt a child with special needs. Well, I didn't need to adopt, I ended up giving birth to a child with down syndrome. For the past 6 months, I've often wondered if that is why God choose us to have Joey. For whatever reason, I am so grateful that we have him. I wouldn't change anything!
And, can you all believe this??? JOEY IS 6 MONTHS OLD TODAY!! Wow, has time gone by fast?! It just seems like yesterday that I was pregnant and ready to pop!
