Amy Signs by Rebecca Willman Gernon

“Thirty-seven years ago, I vowed to write a truthful book about raising a deaf child.” Rebecca Willman Gernon followed through on her promise with her deaf daughter Amy Willman in this extraordinary new narrative. Many stories have been told about a parent’s struggle to help her deaf child succeed in a mostly hearing world. Amy Signs marks a signature departure in that both Rebecca and Amy relate their perspectives on their journey together.

This is my friend Rebecca's wonderful non-fic story. If you want the real story about raising a deaf child, or indeed any child with a disability, this is it. With touches of humor that lighten the appropriately serious tone, the book has been called "Powerful" and "A wonderful book written with love."
