There’s Something Very Different About This Seemingly Normal Restaurant.

If you were walking by this brand new restaurant, you may be surprised to notice something a little different about the staff. It might seem a little bizarre at first, but it’s truly brilliant. Signs is a restaurant that hires a certain kind of server (but most people may not realize it when they first step in the door).

More importantly, even ordering a meal here helps bring people like yourselves in touch with those we may never have otherwise interacted with.

Don’t have any idea what I’m talking about? Check this out and all will be revealed…

What the restaurant’s owner is doing to raise awareness to those deaf people all around us is amazing. By helping make American Sign language approachable, and even fun, perhaps these patrons will be encouraged to reach out to people they wouldn’t have in the future. If you think this place would be fun to visit, be sure to share with your friends using the buttons below.

A Deaf Baby Experiences Hearing For The First Time… And This Is His Reaction.

7 week-old Lachlan was born without the gift of hearing, having been diagnosed very early on with severe sensorineural hearing impairment in both ears.

This is the moment that he was able to hear for the very first time thanks to his first hearing aid. His reaction when the doctor turned on the aid was truly amazing. He went from shock, to being quite confused over this new experience to having the most precious little smile on his face.

Lachlan’s parents say their beautiful little boy is two years old now and doing remarkably well. Soon after Lachlan received his hearing aids, he started speech therapy with the assistance of an early intervention service offered by Tarayle, which is an oral language center for deaf children.

When This Little Girl Finally Hears For The First Time, I Lost It. Beautiful.

Growing up without one of the five senses is no setback to the impaired. They adapt, learn, and become stronger by dealing with it.

But what if someone had the chance years later to gain a sense they never had? What if they had chance to finally use what everyone else takes for granted? How would you react if this suddenly became reality for you?

My eyes didn’t make it past the 1:30 mark. Seeing this young girl finally experience the sound of her voice for the first time… wow. It truly makes you believe in miracles.
