I am partly blind and my parents only knew that I was deaf until I was 2 years old. It means that I missed 2 years of learning.

I am fairly successful at lip reading...I think haha!! I am really only great at it with people I know closely, like family and best friends. Personally, I find it exhausting, especially in situations with more than one person involved. I agree with most that learning ASL is a great help as well as such a beautiful language!
