Message from the Chair:
Wow! Time flew so quickly that we are now in June, middle of 2008. Since I last wrote at the beginning of 2008, announcing our excellent selection of Ambassadors, raising the profile of Deaf Parenting UK and putting us on the map. I am delighted to inform you that since then, my life changes for the better, after giving birth to a baby boy on 19th March 2008 and that my first daughter just celebrated her 2nd birthday. Dealing with newborn and a toddler is often a great challenge for many parents including tiredness, sleepless nights but nevertheless, both brought us lots of love, lights and joy to our lives.
Although it is a very busy start to the year for many of us, I am delighted to inform you that Deaf Parenting UK have continued to sought more support from Her Majesty the Queen and well-known celebrities including, Niki Evans, X-Factor, Coronation Street and some MPs.
We also welcome our new Ambassadors Mike Penning MP, Richard Howitt MEP and Cathie Craigie MSP and our national/ international supporters who have written their messages of support to Deaf Parenting UK. They were so pleased to see Deaf Parenting UK growing strength to strength, being the only one of its kind in UK and worldwide.
May we reach out to as many Deaf parents across the UK countries in Scotland, Wales, North Ireland and England and make them aware of our small but unique national organisation, representing Deaf parents and professionals who work with Deaf parents.
To learn more about Deaf Parenting UK and to qualify for free membership for Deaf parents/ families, please go to www.deafparent.org.uk.
Wishing you all a wonderful summer and may the year bring us strengths in reaching out and supporting to all our families and communities.
With warmest wishes
