About Me

My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.

Luke's progress with ASL

This is a video that Luke made about 2 months ago and I want to keep it on here to document his progress in learning ASL. He came to Tom and I January 17th, 2011 with no language, no gesture system nothing and this was just a few months after he came home. He has progressed even more so I will have him make a new one in a few days to compare the difference.
Here is hoping this worked!
