Hi everyone. Over 30 years ago I went to a private school for the deaf 6,7, and part of 8th grade. Through circumstances my family moved and I was sent back to public school in another state. I have only used sign language sporadically. But for 2 years I have unsuccessfully tried to reconnect with deaf culture. I live in the Chicago burbs now and have reached out to 2 deaf social organizations through email and didn't receive any response. At 44 years old I find I miss deaf culture. I miss using sign language although I only used English syntax. By now I'm sure I've lost the ability to follow sign language at conversational speed. Any ideas how I can reconnect? My interests are all things horticulture and I'm active at my church. Also I'm a widower and I have a 10 yr old son. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
