"One Lovely Blog" Award

While my family and I were away on vacation, my friend Liz from http://lizsdeafblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/my-blog-award.html nominated me along with 14 other bloggers for the "One Lovely Blog Award".  Congratulations, Liz, on your own nomination by by Melissa over at Living with a Cochlear Implant Thank you, Liz, for nominating me along with such wonderful fellow bloggers.

Here are the 5 guidelines to accepting this award:

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
2. Paste the award image on your blog, anywhere.
3. Tell them seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award.
5. Contact the bloggers that you have chosen to let them know that they have been nominated.

1.) I was a hard of hearing child who became deaf late in life.

2.) I am a mother of two hearing children (CODA's - child/children of deaf adult).

3.) I am married to a husband who is hearing.

4.) I volunteer my time at a private school teaching hearing children how to sign. The school has the 
 distinct reputation of teaching its students three languages, English, Spanish and Sign Language.
