Wells Fargo released a tender and touching advertisement this week featuring a lesbian couple practicing sign language phrases such as “Let’s read a book,” and “Are you cold?” Sweet music plays in the background as we see the women in their home, at their work and at sign language classes, preparing. Then, they meet their hearing impaired daughter, and they introduce themselves, signing, “Hello, beautiful. We’re going to be your new mommies. I’m so happy.” And the little girl breaks into a heartwarming smile and signs back, “I’m so happy too.” It’s a tearjerker! Well done, Wells Fargo! Watch it in its entirety below.
