I have to saying that was very interesting to read about your daughter..... I remembered myself was at deaf school when I was in 7th grade and I had to stayed at Dorm at Berkeley California... I didnt think of "home sick" with my family I was so excited because of deafies was there and whole the commuications that I was happy and very desire for... so I was very happy there with everything! I never forgot myself at very VERY first
time I enter to that deaf school of course I was so freaked out.... lol but didnt cried for my family.
Well interesting thought.
