Last week was a HUGE week for The Deaf Dream. We are absolutely THRILLED to announce that Jerry, our newest Deaf Dreamer, started university last week in Uganda! Jerry's dream is to "use my skills in arts to influence and inspire other Disabled person to do the same things I do.

Victoria is officially admitted into Presbyterian College of Education in Akropong, Ghana!
I am crying for joy this morning. I just opened an email from Emmanuel, Victoria's guardian, who sent me the most wonderful picture of Victoria and the following letter. This is really happening!!
