This webinar is a follow up to our successful Global 25th Anniversary of Mother-Father Deaf Day Celebration-April 25, 2021. We felt the need to continue our conversation about family well-being and our diverse Coda, Deaf and Hearing multilingual journeys. Our heartwarming takeaway led us to have this conversation to explore and celebrate our diverse identities together. As a result, we have invited Ms. Sheila Jacobs a licensed Family Therapist, to have a sit down conversation via Zoom. Let’s have that conversation. Everyone is welcome!
