Francis is probably 10 years old. Francis has a big white smile that he loves to show. Francis is deaf, but does not have a lot of problems communicating his needs. With signs that he has conjured up and body language, you can usually understand him. Francis will be going to the Santiago Deaf school this fall. He has been evaluated and accepted to the school where he will be taught sign language and lip reading. Francis loves playing hide and seek with people’s things, only he hides them so well, we don’t find them until Spring cleaning! Francis also enjoys going to church. When he wants to go to church or is confirming going, he puts his hands together in the prayer position and bows his head. At church, Francis sits right between the pastors.
