An 8-year-old girl proves that adults are not the only ones capable of doing extraordinary things for their children.
Cara, a true embodiment of her deaf parents’ devotion, learned sign language to better communicate with them.
People around the world are delighted by her intention to help her parents. “Because both my parents are deaf, I grew up learning sign language.
They need guidance to understand what’s going on,” the young girl explained in her touching video.
In her video, Cara McCartan also mentioned the techniques they use to facilitate communication.
For instance, her parents had set up a light device to alert them of visitors or phone calls.
In case of emergencies, Cara can activate the distress button and receive immediate assistance.
She also revealed that her mother has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease characterized by the buildup of mucus in the lungs and subsequent airway obstruction.
Last year, Cara saved her mother’s life, and as a result, Mr. Harvey Norman presented her with the Northern Island Spirit of Youth Award.
“I consider it a privilege to be fluent in both English and sign language. It’s wonderful to be able to sign for my parents and speak English with them in front of my family and acquaintances,” said Cara.
For such a young age, Cara has achieved something extraordinary, something that the majority of children or even adults wouldn’t be capable of.
She has demonstrated that even young children can express their emotions in a meaningful way.
