Unlike many of her friends, Claire grew up without the ability to communicate with her parents. Because her parents are deaf, Claire and her little sister learned American Sign Language since they were babies as it was the only way for them to communicate with each other.
So when her parents attended a holiday concert hosted by Claire’s elementary school, Claire did something that touched everyone’s heart. While singing along with her classmates, Claire also signed the entire song for her parents to understand in sign language. She just wanted her parents to be involved. Claire’s mom says, “I didn’t ask her, it wasn’t expected, it was just a surprise.”
