Another Compound Sign in FSL

I would have moved the arm and left hand to below the arrows, as the primary movement is down, and centered it.  I can read it because it is very similar to ASL, but this shows more explicitly the position of the flat hands at the contact points.

Dear Val and List,

Thanks for the comments on „purpose“.

Now I have another question: The FSL sign for daughter is very hard for me to write. I tried the following: 


Here the verbal explanation: The left hand is kind of stationary throughout the sign. The right hand starts out touching the right cheek, then turns forward down and a little up again, before hitting down on the lower left arm close to the elbow. It is a very graceful movement, not jerky at all as one might think with all these arrows that I wrote, but I have a hard time figuring out, which arrows to use and also how much I need to write in order to still be understood.


Please, help!
