That's amazing. :)  

I was born without hearing.  I didn't learn ASL until my college days...I wasn't allowed.  My parents taught me to speak and they really didn't want me focusing on sign language and relying on it, but I still learned as soon as I had the chance.  It really is a beautiful language and it's a lot of fun to learn.

Your friend is lucky to have you to learn the ropes with him. :) And I'm glad you both have something to distract a little from negativity and the not-so-nice things. 

Best of luck!
