I am so excited!!!! As I sit here at the computer my teenage daughter is chatting with her friends. They’ve talked about Justin Bieber, what they’re going to do after school, what color they are going to do their nails next, and the regular banter of teenagers. It is music to this mother’s ears because it is the first time she has ever been able to talk to her friends. Of course, she has her cell phone and she is able to text her friends, but this this the first time I can see the giggles and silly faces teenagers make when they are happy. My daughter is deaf, and she has just learned how to use the Sorenson Video phone. She can now see her friends and they can talk with American Sign Language! At last, I have a “normal” teenage daughter!!!!
