Iowa Baseball Camp for the Deaf…

Katy told me she was going to be working all week with hearing impaired kids at a baseball camp for the deaf.  My initial reaction was that emotional swelling of admiration and pride!  She is one of those kids who followed her passion right out the door when she was 18 – to University of Northern Iowa to be an english major – and then she found the deaf education program which sent her to Kent State University in Ohio.  Then on to Kent’s masters program and teaching in the public schools in Cleveland and Akron….and now she is in Des Moines making a difference in the lives of children who are hearing impaired.

Last night she told me that there was a Facebook page for Iowa Baseball Camp for the Deaf.  I was not prepared for the joy on the faces of the kids as I went thru the photos.  It brought tears to my eyes.  It made me want to be there and be a part of it!
