I also felt the pain as AWS and Ellen in the story. I did show it to my family (who are all hearing) and now they are accepting my choice to identify myself as Deaf, using Sign Language and voice off more now.
Severely deaf from birth.
Deaf with a Purpose. God designed me this way so I do everything by God's Grace.
