I am so proud of Kat tonight. She is in a Girl Scout troop with all hearing girls. Tonight they had a cookie booth at a local grocery store. She was amazing. She talked with the customers and helped them decide what cookies to pick. I even watched her "pitch" from a few aisles away. She said "These three are new this year. And these two are very popular." She was understood easily by the strangers and was able to understand them, even in the noisy supermarket. She doesn't need a go-between, she doesn't struggle with those around her, and she is a completely independent communicator, like any kid her age. I am blown away by what the last 5 years has done!
