Santa signing to child

"Mali Phoenix Williams-Cody, aged 3, has visited the Cleveland Centre's
special event days several times. I have some great photos of her at
Halloween as well as Christmas. She came with her mum on Saturday to
meet Santa. Mali is not deaf, she struggles to communicate with speech
and language. She has been attending a special school to help with her
communication and this is were she learned sign language. As seen in the
video, Santa asked Mali’s mum if she could sign and touched hearts all

who witnessed it live. I was so pleased I could capture such a special
moment and share it with the world."
