Thank YOU!

At ASLdeafined, we want to personally THANK YOU for your interest in learning American Sign Language, and for joining our growing family. Additionally, we want to give a very warm and sincere "Thank You" to so many of you who have emailed either Mercy, or myself, to express your gratitude and appreciation for the time and effort that was put forth to develop this website. Your words of encouragement have been deeply moving. Your testimonials explaining how this new language has impacted both you and your family has been moving and uplifting. Thank you for your heartfelt expressions of gratitude.

On a more personal testimonial, Mercy and i want to share with you a brief story of one of the first subscribers to our website. A young man who was hearing wrote to say he wanted to learn sign language because his new girlfriend was deaf. His reason for subscribing was sincere and his story touched both Mercy and myself. This is what this website is all about. It isn't designed to be entertaining, or something to check out when there is nothing else to do. Rather, it is the tool that will help individuals and families, friends and co-workers communicate with one another in a far more effective way.

As a teacher in both high school and college classrooms, I have personally witnessed the impact of ASLdeafined. For example, one student from a few years ago related how he and his siblings always wrote notes to each other because the entire family was deaf, but not one of them knew sign language. The parents were deaf since their teen years and now were in their early 50s. Once the children began learning a few words in sign language, their knowledge slowly began to expand until the paper and pencils became obsolete. This is the most gratifying aspect that we have realized through the development of ASLdeafined. Not only do we want you to learn Sign Language, but we want you to communicate with your new skill and knowledge.

Seasons Greetings!

Mercy and I would like to express to you our warmest regards during this holiday season, and we wish you and your family a healthy and joyous holiday season.
