If I had a deaf child and felt emotionas like anger, grief I would not like to feel alone in that. If i felt broken-hearted and confused, then I would find this storyline very encouraging! I would feel less alone. I don't have a deaf child, but I do find this storyline very touching, very emotional, and very important. Some people who will be watching AMC have never thought of deafness. Others who see it maybe have some wrong thoughts about people who are deaf. I think for many people this will be an enlighting and potitive expperience as they watch this all unfold. I think Ms. Minshew is correct. This storyline is one that will make a difference in many people's lives!

One of my best friends just had a baby this year. Her baby is deaf. I told her to watch All My Children and she was really shocked that they would write a story line like this, shocked, but in a good way. So from me, and from her, THANK YOU!
