Great packaging, thank you!!
Welcome to Love Letters by Emily - for unique prints and notecards, ASL gifts and custom orders fingerspelled in American Sign Language.
Inspired by Emily's Teacher of the Deaf - who photographed her hand fingerspelling LOVE in American Sign Language letters and made the sweetest Valentine's gift for us ~ from there, one idea led to another...and another...and our Etsy shop was born!
Twenty-four years ago ~ following open heart surgery when she was just 8 weeks old, we began an amazing journey with our special needs daughter, Emily ~ and have learned to express our love in many ways - most often without saying a word.
At the age of 18 months, when we first learned of Emily's hearing loss, teachers and staff at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf quickly became our teachers and mentors ~ and helped us learn our ABC's (and so much more! ) As developmental delays and other medical issues were revealed, it's been a challenge to provide communication & education. Once her formal school education ended, we created Love Letters by Emily to provide a means for her to continue to learn and grow, and share her best talents!
Love Letters by Emily enables Emily to share her knowledge through our designs, our Facebook page, and YouTube videos. With digital photography, computer technology and social networking ~ she is able to communicate and teach others sign language as well. Our shop story ~ plus a video of Emily signing the ABC's in ASL may be found at our profile page for the Martha Stewart American Made 2013 contest: www.marthastewart.com/americanmade/nominee/81307
Sending heartfelt thanks to YOU ~ for choosing to celebrate special occasions with Love Letters by Emily!
