  1. It looks like a great plan! I have some sign language DVD's if you'd like to borrow them. Just let me know. One is directly for kids and the other is for adults but they (and you) may benefit. I have some books too but they are on loan right now. I have some dictionaries but also one on signing Bible verses.
