Mazel tov, Amy! I'm sure it'll be a help to have SignWriting in
the book, since I'm sure even native signers sometimes have trouble
figuring out the pictures _and_ the glosses.
From what I've seen, you'll get a lot of support from this
list. I'm interested to see how the prayers have been translated!
