An entire community in Newton, Massachusetts, is learning sign language just to make a 2-year-old girl happy.

Two-year-old Samantha Savitz is deaf, but she loves to talk to anyone who can engage in sign language.

"Her whole personality changes when it's someone who can communicate with her," her mother, Glenda, told CBS News.

On the other hand, if someone can't communicate with her, it makes Sam a little sad.

So, Sam's neighbors got together, hired an instructor, and are now fully immersed in an American Sign Language class.


The instructor, Rhys McGovern, says this is remarkable because a lot of times even the parents of deaf children don't bother to learn sign language.

"But here Sam has a full community that's signing and communicating with her and her family, and it is a beautiful story," Rhys said.
