Inspired by Emily's Teacher of the Deaf - who photographed her hand fingerspelling LOVE in American Sign Language letters and made the sweetest Valentine's gift for us ~ from there, one idea led to another...and another...and our Etsy shop was born!
Twenty-nine years ago ~ following open heart surgery when she was just 8 weeks old, we began an amazing journey with our special needs daughter, Emily ~ and have learned to express our love in many ways ~ most often without saying a word.
At the age of 18 months, when we first learned of Emily's hearing loss, teachers and staff at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf quickly became our teachers and mentors ~ and helped us learn our ABC's and so much more! As developmental delays and other medical issues were revealed, it's been a challenge to provide communication & education. With a recent diagnosis of CHARGE syndrome, there is a whole new perspective for the future.
Once her formal school education ended, we created Love Letters by Emily to provide a means for her to continue to learn and grow, and share her best talents!
Love Letters by Emily enables Emily to share her knowledge through our designs, our Facebook page, and YouTube videos. With digital photography, computer technology and social networking ~ she is able to communicate and teach others sign language as well.
Sending heartfelt thanks to YOU ~ for choosing to celebrate special occasions and the special people in your lives with Love Letters by Emily!
This striking black and white capture during the signing of FRIEND in ASL makes a perfect gift for someone whose friendship you cherish. Signed by Emily Maxwell and photographed by her mom, Carolyn Maxwell ~ creating expressions of LOVE in American Sign Language.
