The Mime Child
A child, who is called The Mime Child, is born to a hearing-impaired Mother and learns how much the silence of her deafness impacted his life. While they both initially think of each other as impaired, their journey through life helps them realize that they were both really enhanced beings and not impaired. The story is told through the eyes of the Mime Child who suffers with embarrassment at his Mother's hearing-impairment and becomes a mime not realizing that this was a gift his Mother bestowed upon him. His Mother's death causes him to have an epiphany in which he sees the true meaning of his Mother's impact on him: to make him a greater communicator.
