Kid's ASL sign for angel

Meaning: A spiritual being that serves especially as a messenger from God or as a guardian of human beings.

Phonological development: The soon-to-be-two girl was looking for a little angel. She asked her grandmother for it that was last seen in the little sleigh that she pointed at. The way she signed was in an early phonological development.
