I just heard a re broadcast of you speaking on NPR radio. I was so touched and brought to tears. My story fits in, and oh, I have reserved your book with the library. My Nora is adopted and after raising another daughter, I was so angry at myself for not discovering Nora's deafness till she was 9 months. Not knowing anything about the deaf world, I/we was in a state of shock. I appealed to the adoption agency and their reply was "do you want to return your child?". I was floored and gave up on them. She was MY/OUR daughter. Through friends I found St Joseph's Sch. for the Dear and an Angel Barbara who became Nora's tutor when Nora was ten months old. Nora was always a good student and learned to speak and lip read, and as an adult learned signs. I am happy that she lives in two worlds. It has been a journey that I would never pass up on, and today she is a high achiever working for the US Government in a very special capacity and is married with four hearing children. Thank you for listening to me.
