A book that I really enjoyed was "A LOSS FOR WORDS" by Lou Ann Walker. The materials that I read when we first discovered that Kirsten was Deaf tended to all concern Deaf children. But I found that through these resources, I did not learn much about Deaf Culture or experiences. This book is written by the daughter of two profoundly Deaf parents, she is one of their 3 hearing children and she wrote about their family life from her perspective. Very enlightening.
