A woman who lost her hearing at the age of two was able to regain some hearing with hearing aids, but after she got married her sense of hearing got worse. The doctors said that the only way for her to hear clearly would be to get a cochlear implant.
The woman and her husband held out for a while, because they had just had a baby. Two years later, they finally went through with the procedure.
In this touching video, the woman hears clearly for the first time. She is very happy in the beginning, but when her husband asks her what she thinks, she said it’s amazing and couldn’t hold back her tears.
“This is the video of the device getting turned on for the first time,” the husband wrote in the YouTube description. “The following day she was outside with my son and heard a noise and my son who is 2.5 said birdie tweet tweet. We just want every one to know how well these things work.”
People who watched the video were touched by the moment and left emotional comments on Facebook:
“She’s beautiful and her reaction is just a beautiful. The things we take for granted. God bless her,” said Cyra Shepett.
“So happy for her and for all those who will be able to do this. We take so much things for granted and then we get to see things like this. Be thankful, appreciate all that you have, there are so many less fortunate,” said Violet Burgess.
