Henry and his cat will be one of the photos featured in the “Favourite Signs” book. Apparently children with cats are very difficult to capture. I had two adorable dog photos that pretty much fell on my lap so I needed to capture some cats. After a couple unsuccessful tries I understand why there aren’t many professional photos of children with cats…it’s nearly impossible!
Thank goodness my dear friend Amber is a photographer! She took this photo of her son Henry and sent it to me. Amber Bond lives in Ontario now but she was the one of the first photographers to help with Little Signing Stars. When Amber lived in Winnipeg she took numerous photos for our personalized booklets. I remember one time Amber and I were travelling between classes together when my car broke down. That was the first time I ever saw someone use a smart phone! We were going to be late for our next sign language class at a community center and I didn’t have their phone number so I was in a panic. She quickly “googled” the name of the community center and called them within a minute. Oh my! I was really impressed. How times have changed!
It was a pleasure having Henry as part of our class as well! Amber was a big support to Little Signing Stars by telling many friends and clients about the program. She loved coming to class with Henry and wanted to share her experience with others. I’m truly blessed to have so many parents refer the classes to their friends and family. It really is an honour!

Our books have been sent to the printers and we recently received a few expedited copies in the mail. I’m so thankful for such a supportive family that helped me along the way. The rest of the shipment is coming in 2-4 weeks so we’re planning a ‘Book Release Party’ on July 27. (Faith’s birthday and mine too!)
The photos below were taken almost 2 years apart. The first photo is for the “read a book” page and the second photo is our family enjoying the final product – our book!! It’s so rewarding to say “we finished what we started”.
My husband, Calvin, is a middle years math/science teacher. He was the computer guy and the most essential piece to these books. Without Calvin’s support I couldn’t have done it – period. Countless times I wanted changes done to the pages and he told me it was impossible but somehow, someway… he pulled it off. Hours and hours spend on minor details. Sometimes after all that work I would have to admit that we couldn’t use a certain photo, background or layout. He generously gave up his time and modeled dedication to our girls. I’m so thankful for him!
Our girls were quick to offer suggestions and tips for every page. They were really part of this whole process. We prayed every evening for Faith’s kidney transplant and our books to be completed. The goal was for the books to be done in September then before Christmas then spring – now it’s June and they are finally done just waiting for the entire shipment to arrive! Only God knew the right time. Unknown to us we officially submitted the books to the printer the same day Faith’s parents got “the call” for a kidney. Thankful for answered prayer!
