View from behind of a little girl doing sign language for her deaf delivery driver who is smiling wide.

As an adult, making new friends can often feel complicated. But a kid named Tallulah McLellan is showing us all that there are more opportunities to forge friendships than we may think. In 2020, she took note of the fact that her local delivery driver, Tim Joseph, is deaf. This inspired the thoughtful girl to learn sign language so she and the driver could communicate.

At first, the two of them communicated through hand-drawn cards. So, to say that Tim was moved by Tallulah’s kind gesture would be an understatement! The then 8-year-old’s mom captured one of their conversations, and it quickly went viral once she shared it online.

Like Tallulah learning sign language, this kind gesture for the 8-year-old meant the world. And because she was prepared, Tallulah was able to say “thank you” in sign language.
