Gabriel read your message and he was so exciting. He will tell all his
teacher to check the SW page after you post his poem. Gabriel says, Thanks
so much...

Dear SignWriting List Members...

As you may remember, 24 hours ago I announced our new Independent S'Writers
Forum. I just posted the first contributing article to the Forum:

A Giraffe Named Ivan
by Nancy Romero

I assumed it would be months before someone else contributed a new article

Well...I was wrong!! Within 24 hours I received our second contributing

Today, Lourdes and her son, Gabriel, sent me two email messages - one with
the attached .SGN file, which is a poem written by Gabriel in ASL in
SignWriting, and the other file included a wonderful photo of Gabriel, who
is 12 years old, and an illustration of a horse, which is a lovely
illustration :-)

Thank you, Gabriel, for the great contribution....we will build a library
of literature now, I can see that!!

I cannot say exactly when I will get to posting your new
may be around ten days from now...I am sorry you have to wait (smile). We
have several other groups waiting for me to post their work, related to
other subjects, and I am working on those postings right now.

But no matter what, your poem will be posted, and when it is, I will of
course announce it to the SignWriting List!

Thank you for the gift of the poem in SignWriting!

Valerie ':-)
