Last night the Hobbit and I went to a fund raiser/auction for girls camp for my daughter. The Hobbit and I were talking (in ASL) and some missionaries came up to us and asked “Which one of you is deaf?” using the sign at the same time. Turns out he is a CODA serving a mission here in Houston, and not in the ASL mission. He was very nice and excited to use his skills. He said he felt as if his skills were fading just over the time in his mission with the hearing. We told him all about our recent CODA experiences and talked all evening until the girls started doing their theatrical sketches. He was a very nice kid and we had a great experience talking to him.
I wasn’t going to post at all for a few weeks, let things die down, but this is my blog about my personal experiences and it has, for the most part, been positive and uplifting. It was good to have a positive experience with CODA after everything that has happened the last few weeks.
There will be no comments on this thread, but if you liked it, please like the post, and if you didn’t like it, please just go away and find another blog to read. Thanks.
