How often do you get dirty looks for having a child, let alone a disabled child, so young?

Will you be teaching him sign language? So he makes no sounds at all? Poor lil guy!

I had to learn sign language early, my cousin is deaf. Do anyone else in the family know sign language too?

No one else does and for some reason they have no desire to learn.

Does it cause him any other (than the obvious not being able to speak/cry/etc) issues?
