Special Exposure Wednesday
I know it's only a cardboard Obama, but it was still very exciting for Ashley. All Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, Ashley practiced saying 'Barack'. The closest she got was 'bwog', but for a deaf child who has only learned to say about five words using a very tedious and difficult method called Tadoma, 'bwog' is huge!
This is a new beginning for America, and Ashley celebrated with a new word! I'm proud of her and of our country.
