Evan's New Aide
Jeremy got to meet Evan's new signing aide this morning. Her name is Di, and she hasn't been officially hired yet but the school went ahead and had her start working with Evan. Di is fluent in ASL and has been an interpreter for 8 years. She has taught parents of Deaf children ASL and even offered to teach a private class for us and any other interested parents in the area. Jeremy and I feel incredibly blessed that in our small community, in less than 6 months, not just one--but two--very qualified people have answered the posting for this part-time, modest-pay job. After one class with Evan, Di told Jeremy she was hooked (but honestly, how could she not be?).
