Today he leave to go North for work. At airport he see security trying to explain to Deaf girl that shampoo too large to come with carry on luggage. He see that she frustrated and 'shutting down' because cannot be understood. He was able to sign and gesture to her what the problem was. She understood him and put shampoo in luggage that go to storage on plane!!
He text me *SO* happy and exhilarated that he knew what to sign and was not shy or embarrassed about it at all. This is first time he sign with someone not me.
I'm *SO*, so proud of him!! Had to share.
That's a great story! So cool
