I have an adorable little girl to show you here, her name is Cabrina...
and, yes, she does have some pink in her outfit, and she's just so cute, but that's not really the reason for introducing her to you today...
Cabrina's Dad, Jeno, is a realtime broadcast captioner...
and he provides closed captions for live television programming.
This is the same field I myself am in now for many years also.
Closed captions are very important to anyone with a hearing loss, and as captioners for television, we know that.
There are days though sitting in our home offices that it may not be at the forefront of our minds that we DO make a difference in the lives of those with hearing loss. After all, it's just us, a stenography machine, software and a LOT of talking (well, you really don't realize HOW much people talk until you caption what they're saying on television every day.)
Well, Cabrina wrote a note to MELT YOUR HEART to and about her Dad that I wanted to share with you today... (Please click on letter to make larger)
And I thought it Pink Saturday worthy, because Cabrina herself is an extraordinary girl and made a difference in MY day with the pleasure of her Dad, Jeno, sharing this letter with fellow captioners.
You might be interested to learn more about REALTIME CAPTIONING and also I have a previous post on a fellow PINK SATURDAY BLOGGER LINNEA who has a hearing loss with more information and tips on hearing loss. Linnea will be my Pink Saturday Link today, if you haven't met Linnea be sure to pop over and meet her!
Jeno is a very lucky Dad to have such a sweet daughter, don't you agree?!
And I feel blessed to have had the pleasure of reading this letter!
Make sure to visit all the Pink Saturday participants at How Sweet the Sound today!
