Heartwarming moment deaf boy, two, signs ‘I love you’ to his mother for the first time
This is the touching moment a two-year-old boy signed “I love you” to his dear mother.
LA, California: Devoted mom, Crystal Kouri was in the middle of doing grocery shopping with her little son, PJ, when he surprised her with his amazing sign language skills.
PJ has the Treacher Collins syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes facial deformities. As a result, PJ was born with underdeveloped ears, which caused his hearing loss.
The astounding video shows PJ, who is sitting in a shopping trolley at the supermarket, say “I love you” to his mother by using sign language.
Crystal then signs “I love you” back to her son.
PJ has so far already had five surgeries to help with his breathing issues, but despite all this, he has learned to communicate through sign language.
Even though he can verbally say around 250 words, his preferred method of communication is sign language.
“PJ has Treacher Collins syndrome, like Auggie Pullman, the fictional character from the movie and book, Wonder.
His condition has caused him to have five major surgeries so far which have enabled him to breathe, eat, and grow normally.
Treacher Collins syndrome has caused PJ’s ears to be underdeveloped, resulting in moderate hearing loss.
We began sign language immediately as a way for him to communicate with wearing his hearing aid.
At the age of two, he now has a 250 word vocabulary, both verbal and sign.
Hearing him say and sign ‘I love you’ was as emotional and pivotal as the first time he signed ‘mama’. I stopped right there in the supermarket to record him.”
