This Little Girl Hears Her Voice For The First Time, And Her Parents Caught It All On Camera!
Kai was born with hearing loss, and has never clearly been able to hear herself, her friends, or her family. Doctors determined that she had 50% hearing loss in one ear and 65% hearing loss in the other. This means that she could hear faint sounds, but everything sounded muffled and far away, making her strain and concentrate to hear what was being said. When doctors began to work with her to adjust her hearing with aids, her eyes lit up! She was finally able to hear without having to struggle! While she was able to hear her own voice in the past, she wasn’t able to clearly hear herself in relation to other people around her. When she finally heard herself speaking, she was amazed!
Some of the comments pointed out that she would have been able to hear before the hearing aid, and that she was lying in the video. I just want to point out that she most likely had never been able to hear herself as clearly as she was able to now. What she heard in the past is nothing compared to the level of hearing she was experiencing, and it really is like a new door had been opened in her life!
I hope that this option remains open to her in the future, and in a few more years, more and more breakthroughs will be made in the world of hearing aids! In the meantime, I could watch her excited little face all day! She just looks so happy!
