ABC Family's New Original Series: Switched At Birth

Finally more diversity on our television screens than bickering reality show cat fights lol. ABC Family has a new original series titled "Switched At Birth". I thought it was going to be one of their great movies, but thank GOD it's actually a show. The show is based on two girls mistakenly switched at birth. Years passed and both girls are entering high school, when studying blood types in school, one girl questions why her DNA never matched any of her parents, she begins to ask questions and the hospital delivers the news of the mistake. The other girl however, is deaf. Now they have to cope with starting to a family to strangers they never met, coping with the peers at school, and getting along with each other. It sounds so confusing, but thank GOD for YouTube and trailers lol. I have the trailer so you can understand what the show is about.
How good does the show sound? I can't wait to watch it tonight at 9 P.M. Eastern on ABC Family. I hope you'll be watching with me and I might even tweet live. 

What do you think about Deaf/Disable people joining public schools? What would you do if you were in this situation? What would you do if you were deaf? Do you know someone who is deaf?
