Its the little happy dance after her accomplishment that really gets me #familytings #lovelikebutterflies 🖤🖤🖤

"Though she be but little, she is fierce." . This little girl is nothing short of a miracle, and even though I haven't met her yet, she has grabbed my heart ❤. We, and so many others, are praying for you Ella!

Throw back to 1yr old #sweetbabyella practicing her ASL numbers with her provincial school branch educator. We've come so far since this video was filmed and I couldn't be prouder of her and more grateful for the deaf community.

This is my dad, teaching my youngest how to swim. He was determined to survive cancer long enough to not only meet her but to also teach her to swim like he taught me. He faught hard for the moment you see in this picture and he continues to fight. Today we got good cancer news and even though chemotherapy and radiation has left him with other health conditions; today is a good day. Today we celebrate!! #fuckcancer #lovemesomehim #blackdads #daddy

This video has no sound, it is filled with pure #blackgirlmagic as #sweetbabyella signs "hi daddy" At twenty seven months old and she now communicates fluently in her first language, ASL. Often times she uses both English and ASL simultaneously to support native English speakers. . . #lovemesomeher #lovelikebutterflies #daddysgirl #deafculture #deaf #motherdaughter #asl @unionhearingaidcentre @phonak

Every week until shes no longer gives enthusiastic consent to wear her #hearingaids we perform Sunday maintenance: disassemble her hearing aids into all it parts, clean and preform at home maintenance to help keep her hearings in optimal working conditions, adjust the length of her tubes, and add them to a drying beaker to remove an condensation, check and replace her batteries, tighten all the tiny screws then reassemble and test. As a first time parent of a deaf infant this process was wrought with anxiety and fear of losing or breaking one of the tiny parts but two years in and I now find process therapeutic. I do it with love and care knowing that she will likely have a great hearing week filled with #asl, her laughter, repeating new words in her deaf voice and dancing which is her favorite. Happy Monday brought to you by a prepared Sunday #sweetbabyella

Raising a deaf child is both eye opening and inspiring. I've learnt more about her thoughts, desires and needs in this first 26mths of her life than I've ever thought was possible. I'm grateful that she's a big communicator, and that she is not only self assured but clear on expressing what her love languages are. . This #tbt picture is from playing mas at last weeks children's carnival. Even in the crowds of thousands #sweetbabyella used her first language #asl to keep everyone aware of her needs and emotions. She wore her hearing aids to fully engage in every aspect of the bacchanal, so when the music said whine we whine and when it was time to palave that's exactly what she what she was doing with a big smile and a full heart. . . #lovelikebutterflies #torontocarnival #torontolife #deafculture #motherhood #toddler #the6ix #blackgirlmagic #toronto_insta

Last night's new moon brought with it a level of honesty and clarity I've been yearning for, which left me this morning feeling raw and oh so tender. Then walks in this cutie with a big smile and an open heart, signing "goodmorning mommy" and with it a big juicy kiss.

Mothering in the Movement mom Akio Maroon sums up our film’s raison d’être in one beautiful post (below). Revolutionary love, indeed. ✊🏾❤️🙏🏾 #motheringinthemovement ・・・ Repost @akiomaroon Black.Girl.Joy My whole life I've been taught to fight for freedom, for my rights to exist and to live a life worthy of the freedom fighters before me. Through school I've been taught the queen's English and a colonized history rewritten for and by men to make themselves great in the afterlife. But in times like these when Black joy has been criminalized and demonized. When Black laughter is deemed too rowdy for public space and Black dance too vulgar for the human race. Everything about Blackness is being comprised, categorized, policed, confined, stolen and repackaged; But not today. Today I'm taking a mental health day, a Black mental health day, where my only focus is on Black Joy: how to harness it, maintain it, and protect it. I wish there were more days like these. BMHDays that would be paid for by the state as reconciliation for all the Black bloodshed and hate.

Earlier today I met a little girl...she was 10 years old. She looked up at her mother and said, " is that Jill Andrew?" My heart melted. Her mother, her daughter Zoe and I took a picture. Zoe proceeded to tell me about all the wonderful things she's doing in her school to make her community a better place. Zoe is caring for her environment, promoting food security, moving around having fun and learning about how to have healthy relationships. I looked at her and told her she'd be running one day too! Zoe is a community builder and she's 10years old. We also have Ocean the_ocean_runner who is helping out in the campaign office she is big sister to #sweetbabyella and a young activist who is a runner, smimmer & surfer who voted orange crush today with her friends. These young girls are using their voice for change we must uplift and amplify the voices of these young leaders so that they can continue to be the change that we want to see in the world ! This is the Ontario that we to build . Vote NDP ( less than two hours left to vote ) Let's idr #change4better #tostpauls #onpoli #ontariothrive #jill4tsp
