In 2011 we enrolled the entire family into a ASL course being instructed by Nancy Zavaglia, who has herself been profoundly deaf since birth. Nancy has been teaching sign language at the College of New Caledonia for the past 11 years.
Little did we know what an incredible connection our little princess would make and a great friend we would find. Immediately you could see Karensa forming a bond which was just wonderful to see. It wasn't soon after that we discovered both my husband and Nancy shared a passion for Photography.
Since the course, we have kept contact through Facebook and during the summer we went down to the park and she took some great photo's of our family. Jeremy and Nancy continue to challenge one another with their cameras, and Nancy has watched Karensa while we were off to appointments.
We have become great friends and look forward to what 2012 will bring.
