Thank you Val for this comment (and thanks again André too) :-) it
encourages me to continue this way !

I just looked on a Web-Routeplaner how far is Osnabrück. It's about
450km away from my Hometowm (approx 4h30 to drive [one way: means
another 4h30 to drive back home]), no chance to do a 'daytrip' to
Osnabrück to meet Stefan :-(
I have to work the whole day long, impossible to get a day off. And
Samuel too, he is every workday in school (Logopedie). Samuel really
like to go to School every Day. But i have to say, that Samuels
Signlanguage is not very developed, he do not learn much signlanguage at
school (they use signed German, LBG), and his Mother and I are only at a
beginners Level in signing.
Luxembourg is not yet a country for signers - but things are changing
slowly. One Deaf-Organisation here (DAAFLUX) is fighting for the
acceptation of Signlanguage as real Language. Luxembourg has not even
one only Interpreter for Signlanguage. So i.e. visiting a doctor is real
difficult for them. Deaf People must call and pay themselwes
Interpreters from Germany. But i heard something that at least this Year
2007, one Signlanguage-Interpreter will get a Job here in Luxembourg
(should preferably be a German Signer, for Deaf People in Luxembourg
knows DGS). Must see if this becomes true. Would be a first winning
situation for DAAFLUX <www.daaflux.lu> who was founded by Deaf People in
Currently, i am writing on "/Ein Plädoyer für die Anerkennung von
Gebärdensprache in Luxemburg/" ("/A Pleading for the Acceptance of
Signlanguage in Luxembourg/") but it takes time to get all Informations
needed. For this work, i also asked help from People here in Luxembourg
and in Germany, who are working with Deaf People or who having a
knowlegde of all these difficult-to-understand Laws. Hope that finishing
this document will take not too long.
