Deaf child has just received a hearing implant. When he hears his mother’s voice for the first time?

This beautiful 8-month-baby boy had a bit of a rough start. He contracted bacterial meningitis at 4 months and it caused him to rapidly lose his hearing. They were able to give him a cochlear implant, which is an electronic medical device that helps to provide a sense of sound to deaf individuals.

You can see the moment when they turn the implant on and he begins to hear for the first time. The smile on his face when he hears his mother’s voice is priceless. You might need to keep some tissues handy for this one. He’s such a little miracle.
