Sunday 17/06/90 – Father’s Day
Willem was very impressed with his present from Hughan. I got Jamie to draw a picture on his card, which he also wrote inside of. He gave his Dad some biltong (dried cured meat).
Willem made a fuss of them both. The boys felt very proud of their gifts. Hughan was very pleased with himself. He blew the candles out after dinner.
(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.)
