Oh so adorable…Angie is adjusting nicely at her new school. She is friendly and already made tons of friends. Her dorm mother just loves and comforts her at night when Angie starts to miss her mommy. Angie’s mom visits regularly and misses her as well.
Deaf and Proud
These children are so amazing, they make you realize how grateful you must be for everything you have in your life , good or bad.

No matter how down I may be feeling when I get back to England looking at the pictures of these children will bring a smile on my face. I didn’t think I had it in me .. to go all the way across the other side of the world and give my time to these amazing children. My time here will soon be up feels like I’ve fallen in love with each and every one of these children. I’m so proud of myself , and at some point in my life I’ll be able to change the life of the children in Jamaica permanently. This is just the beginning.

last night was my first night and I was absolutely scared , but to see the smile on those children’s face when they saw me arrive yesterday was priceless. I hope I can help them as much as I can. So this is my home for the next few days.
I watched these lovely young people for a while today as they chatted and laughed away, and decided to snap a picture. This is quite rewarding to see such bonding between the hearing and the deaf, because that was one of our goals in this small community, to educate the hearing about the deaf and visa versa. I am thrilled to report, they are listening.
The children and dorm parents, at the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf (CCCD), were excited about their new outfits and shoes. Really for them , it was like going shopping and it was a lot of fun watching each child’s excitement. Therefore, these four beautiful girls wanted to say “thank you” for your kindness. What a blessing.

This time we went to Emancipation Square in Spanish Town…Jamaica’s old capital…for an educational tour. The boys were very interested in learning about where we as Jamaicans have come from. A very rewarding day!
Just want to take the time out to thank our tour guide who was a very kind man with a very compassionate heart. A big THANK YOU!

We went to Salt River to cool off from the summer heat. The boys had a great time! This was also a time for educating the community about deaf persons, they were very supportive.
