History of Mother, Father Deaf Day
Mother, Father Deaf Day is a holiday for children of deaf adults who are known as codas to commemorate their parents. There are many deaf adults with hearing children, and that can be a unique parent-child relationship. Since these children are more integrated into the deaf community than most people with hearing loss, they often go into careers helping the deaf.
