One of the nice things about living here in Orange Walk is that many of the Deaf children live fairly close to us. So when we have days off from school, it's easy to have friends come visit. Elizanie (far right) is a good buddy from the Deaf class. Gineli (in the middle) lives with us during the week because her sister lives too far away for her to commute to school. (Her mother died of diabetes about 3 years ago). Sometimes they crochet, cook, talk, or play games. UNO is one of their favorites right now.
