the shape of the water looks like an amazing film and i am so excited to see it i love seeing ASL in media and even though the main character isnt deaf, being mute is still a disability that doesnt have much representation
Wells Fargo just released this touching ad showing two soon-to-be moms learning sign language as they prepare to adopt a little girl who’s deaf. There’s not just one kind of family, and slowly but surely, the world is starting to notice.
