Humans of Pakistan | Story of Signing Family

 

We are a “signing” family.

Wasi was born to our family of deaf individuals – parents with deafness and three deaf brothers. As a result, at the time of his birth, we assumed he too was deaf.

It was only after three years, when I read about his symptoms on the internet and realized Wasi has Down syndrome as well. Our family didn’t know how to process this. But we knew that we loved Wasi with all our heart.

At three, Wasi couldn’t speak or move. He wouldn’t play like any other child. This got us extremely concerned. His life changed when we found out about the Karachi Down Syndrome Program (KDSP). With the interventions and support they provided, Wasi has made substantial progress. The most heartening progress has been in terms of Wasi’s interaction with people in our family. I had found a way to connect with my brother as he learned a way to communicate with me. I see a marked improvement in Wasi’s health as well.

As someone who was unable to move the first three years of his life, it warms my heart to see him walk, play, use a mobile phone and ride a bicycle.

Wasi is five years old now, and just like others he has aspirations and dreams. I wish for him to live a happy and fulfilling life and I hope our society would give him the opportunity to do so.
