    Hi all!
    I was just curious as to whether or not any of our members are deaf and if so where they live at.

    I am not deaf, but am studying to be an ASL interpreter and was hoping to find some multi-regional friends to practice with!

      I am not deaf but I do sign. Growing up my best friend's sister was deaf and my sister was her interpreter. Then when I go to high school all 4 years I was the teachers assistant for special ed and became close with the school's interpreter and learned even more and became close friends with a deaf girl. Now I work at an audiologist where we have a lot of kids that sign.

      The sad thing is when you don't use it you lose it. So I've lost alot that I use to know growing up. I wish I knew someone local who signed. Though I've taught my dh some signs and we'll sign to each other when we need to talk but can't hear. His favorite sign is "Honey" haha.
