The Quiet Room
Welcome to the Quiet Room! This is a special page just for new (and newly diagnosed) parents.
Before you go any further, I must insist you read the paper called "Welcome To Holland" by Emily Kingsley. Someone gave this to me when I first found out we were going to be learning ASL, and it is beautiful. It made me cry, made me face the reality of my emotions, and then I felt so refreshed and ready to love in the truest sense. When you're done with that, scroll down to read our story or check out some of the resources available for you.
