A very touching video has been circulating the internet, when a 20-year-old deaf woman was surprised and delighted to find out a Chick-fil-A employee knew sign language and she was able to order food on her own.
Cynthia Walker, according to her mother, has never experienced a chance to order for herself without people just staring at her.
That changed however, when she went to Chick-fil-A and met cashier, Taylor Anez.
Via ABC 7:
A mother and her deaf daughter were moved so much after a North Carolina Chick-fil-A employee used sign language while taking their order that the mom shared the touching moment on social media.
When they went there, they found Taylor Anez, a high school senior. After hesitating, Cynthia started signing and was surprised when Anez signed back. It was a monumental step of freedom for the young woman.
The restaurant manager didn’t know Anez could sign, but the young cashier says her relatives are deaf and she learned so she could communicate with them.

Taylor’s mom wrote on Facebook:
“I would like to say how much we appreciate your new employee named Taylor, at the Raeford Rd location in Fayetteville, NC.
My daughter Cynthia Walker has never experienced a chance to order for herself without people just staring at her.
Taylor did not miss a beat on greeting us with a warm smile, and asking my daughter first what she would like. My daughter was so surprised and happy. She even asked me how that lady knew how to sign to her.
Just another in a series of acts of kindness from the Christian-oriented chain restaurant. It’s amazing what little things can have such a huge impact on people’s lives.
Here’s a recent report on Chick-fil-A encouraging families to put down their cell phones when visiting their restaurants:
