Here's a video of my 1 year old precocious baby at her 1st birthday party showing the many signs with Mom, Dad, and Grandpa asking Heather how to sign a particular word. She is my oldest daughter of the three girls (all hearing) I have and she just turned 19 years old recently. In this clip she signed several different words such as baby, table, tree, more, thank you, tummy, nose, ear, "Heather" (her name sign) and so on. In this video you can see people were asking her to sign certain words verbally like "Show me 'more' " and she would sign "more." This is a simple video using positive examples the power of using sign language with none of the deaf politics and hate in the effort to push an ideology. Avoid that and you'll go farther with your simple but positive message instead of hate. My daughter today is fluent in sign language.
