nine18twelve: {The Family T at Wash Park}

by ten7sixblog

We are so far behind on our blogs. Holy cow! September, October and November all disappeared far too quickly! How does that happen?!

Annnnyway, now that we’re just about caught up with all of our work, we’ve got some time to go back and get our blogging legs underneath us once again. And who better to start with than this beautiful family? We met these fine folks at Wash Park on a lovely fall evening. This was their first set of family photos with their newest member – their littlest lady was adopted from China last October.

We were so struck by their story. This may sound trite, but they inspired us. They adopted their daughter knowing that she had a disability with her cleft palate and they had plans in place to fix it. But what they didn’t know until they met her (because the information was kept from them) was that she had an additional disability – she is deaf. Discovering this information didn’t disuade them in any way, shape or form. They brought their new baby girl home and started a fantastic journey as a family of five. They all began learning sign language immediately. We were shocked by how good the older kids had already become. They could communicate with their new sister very effectively. The entire family has given her the gift of communication in such a short time. It was so remarkable to watch them all…but they didn’t stop there. They also gave her cochlear implants. These were still very new when we met them and she was just starting to understand her hearing while still experiencing new sounds at every turn. A new sound happened while we were photographing – she heard an ice cream truck for the first time. We can say in all honesty that we will never forget that moment.
