Introduction I married my best friend in 1997 and went on a European adventure with him as he completed a 3-year tour for the Air Force. After returning home, I worked in customer service for 3 years until I was finally able to live my dream of becoming a mother. In August of 2004, our daughter Kennedy was born. I devoted my time and energy into being the best wife and mother I could be, and was blessed to stay home to raise our daughter. In September of 2007, my son Lincoln was born. That’s when our family discovered baby sign language. I began signing to Lincoln when he was about 3 months old. I learned everything I could about ASL and watched Kennedy thrive with it also. As Kennedy learned how to sign she was eager to help me teach Lincoln all that she knew. We were amazed at the results. At 9 months old, Lincoln began signing to us and we haven’t stopped. We were so pleased about how quickly her children were learning vocabulary and saw how learning to sign opened up a whole new world to them. I was also very grateful that signing strengthened the bond within their family. I am very passionate about teaching other parents how to sign with their babies as well.
