In Minnesota the deaf community is a really loving group of people (mind you it's a huge group of people), everyone is so open to "outsiders" and even CODA's seem to be treated as an equal. Is this the same for you? Did your parents ever involve themselves in the deaf community and include you and your siblings too? Is there even a set deaf community where you live where they have events and gatherings together?

I'm obsessed with ASL, I want to be fluent so bad, but alas I don't have any deaf friends or family near, the only person I communicate with is my ASL teacher from HS and we only meet up maybe 2-3x a year now :'(
