About Adelaide

I started signing with my first baby, and I quickly saw the joy and value of signing. From the glimpses into his mind and the help it provided both of us, it was AMAZING. Now I’m signing with my second baby and helping hundreds of parents and family members to sign with their babies.

For this project, I worked with the deaf community. I wanted to create a signing library that honors the signs in ASL, plus I wanted to make videos that would guide moms–whether they watched one or 100. I want every parent–no matter their socioeconomic status–to have access to the information that will help strengthen their relationship and communication with their child from very early on in life. If you agree, share this with another parent or three.
