    What makes you happy?

    What makes me happy is my family. They are always there for me and bring me joy. I love God, also, for the same reason, any gaps my family may leave, he fills in for me. My priorities are to serve God as best I can, everything else in my life will fall into place.

    I think I would put my child in a Deaf school and teach them at home if I saw any gaps in the quality of education. I think the purpose of a Deaf child attending a Deaf school is so they feel comfortable being around children who understand their culture. I think the quality of education at...
