There were minimal resources available when Marshall and Terry Lawrence discovered their daughter Rachel was deaf.
They struggled to communicate with her. They struggled to find ways to help her. They struggled to teach her about their faith.
“That was a whole different world ago because we knew nothing about deaf culture,” Terry said. “We didn’t know anything about what options were available to us, how we would have her educated.”
The Lawrences have come a long way in the decades since. They’ve gone from knowing nothing about deaf culture to paving the way for current and future generations of deaf children to have an easier time in life.
