Even Deaf Children Want The Chance to Communicate With Santa
Every little child waits in anticipation to sit on Santa's lap to tell them what they want for Christmas, but what happens when that child cannot hear or speak? A solution is coming to Grand Rapids.
Never Take Your Senses For Granted
One thing I have learned from being involved in the music business all my life is how precious our senses are. Our senses of sight, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching are some of the greatest gifts that most of all of us have. Unfortunately, not every human is born with all of their senses.
I was recently sick with a head cold, and by no means is this anywhere close to being deaf or losing my senses, but my head was so stuffed I couldn't hear out of one of my ears. Then the cold moved to my throat and I couldn't talk for a couple of days. In those short moments, it reminded me of how important my senses are. This kept me from work and communicating with others but it was only temporary. I couldn't imagine not being able to hear or even worse not being about to communicate as well.
A Special Santa is Coming To Grand Rapids for Kids Who Cannot Hear or Speak
FOX 17 reports that something very beautiful is about to happen for nearly 100 children who are deaf or hard of hearing when "Signing Santa" comes to town on Saturday, December 10 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the SOMI Unified Sports and Inclusion Center.
Can you imagine being a small child or having a small child who cannot hear or has impaired hearing and not being able to tell Santa what they want for Christmas?
If you know of a deaf child who would like to communicate with Santa, this event is free and open to the public but you need to pre-register so Saint Nick knows how many gifts to bring for the kiddos.
The biggest gift "Signing Santa" will bring to those kids are the smiles they will get when they can sign with Santa and he will be able to sign back to them.
