Friday 15/06/90 – making Father’s Day cards
Hughan went to play group. His teacher had made cards for Father’s Day. The children all stuck pictures on the front of the cards and painted in the middle of the card, and she held their hands and wrote their names in the middle as well (we still have the card Hughan made).
She attached each card to a beer with a ribbon, for them to give to their Dads.
(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
