ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ Her Mother’s Voice For The Very First Time Was An ᴏᴠᴇʀᴡʜᴇʟᴍɪɴɢ Experience And Brought Her To Tears
Every mother hopes and prays for their child to be born 100% healthy, with nothing standing in their way of ʟɪᴠɪɴɢ ᴛʜᴇɪʀ Fᴜʟʟᴇsᴛ and best life.
When the appliance was placed in Charly’s ear, Charly’s eyes lit up when the first she heard her mother’s voice.” I love you” she was so touching and overwhelming, that Charly breaks into tears.
“We had our miracle moment that I have been ᴘʀᴀʏɪɴɢ for when Char got her ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ ᴀɪᴅs. We didn’t think she would hear anything so this was more incredible than I can put in to words. Her journey to implants and language development is off to an amazing start,” Christy Keane wrote on her Instagram.
When little Charlotte, or Charly for short, was born with a huge ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ ᴅᴇFɪᴄɪᴇɴᴄʏ, her Mom Christy Keane was ᴇɴᴛɪʀᴇʟʏ ᴛᴀᴋᴇɴ ᴀʙᴀᴄᴋ. At birth, Charly was Fᴀɪʟᴇᴅ ʙᴏᴛʜ ᴇᴀʀs. The nurses and doctors said that this wasn’t ᴜɴᴄᴏᴍᴍᴏɴ, ᴀɴᴅ ᴀssᴜʀᴇᴅ Christy that it was most likely due to Fʟᴜɪᴅs ɪɴ ʜᴇʀ ᴇᴀʀs, ᴇsᴘᴇᴄɪᴀʟʟʏ since she was born at 37 weeks.
Then, at one-month-old, Charly went in to see an ᴀᴜᴅɪᴏʟᴏɢɪsᴛ Fᴏʀ ᴀ ᴅᴇFɪɴɪᴛɪᴠᴇ ᴛᴇsᴛ. Would it be ʙʟᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ-ᴜᴘ Fʟᴜɪᴅ, ᴀs Cʜʀɪsᴛʏ sᴜsᴘᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʀᴜʟʏ ʙᴇʟɪᴇᴠᴇᴅ, or would it be something much more serious?
The ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsɪs ᴡᴀs “ᴘʀᴏFᴏᴜɴᴅ ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ ʟᴏss.” Unsure what that exactly meant, Christy asked the doctor, “Is she ᴅᴇᴀF?” and the answer was yes.
After a lot of crying and processing with her husband – neither of them had ever even met a ᴅᴇᴀF person in their whole lives – the parents did their ʀᴇsᴇᴀʀᴄʜ ᴀɴᴅ Fᴏᴜɴᴅ sᴏᴍᴇ ᴀᴍᴀᴢɪɴɢ information. They decided that giving their child ᴄᴏᴄʜʟᴇᴀʀ ɪᴍᴘʟᴀɴᴛs was the way to go for their family. While ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴏᴠᴇʀsɪᴀʟ to some, Christy and her husband knew that this was the right choice for their family and for their baby.
The moment the ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ aid was in place and turned on, Charly’s face lit up. ʜᴇᴀʀɪɴɢ her mother’s voice for the very first time was an ᴏᴠᴇʀᴡʜᴇʟᴍɪɴɢ experience and brought her to tears. The expressions fleeting across her face will tug at your ʜᴇᴀʀᴛsᴛʀɪɴɢs!
Even though she wasn’t old enough to verbalize her feelings, anyone in the room could tell that she was crying because of the sweet sound of her mother’s voice. It will take time for Charly to learn how to speak, talk and develop her listening skills, but now she’s on the right track! With tears in her eyes, this sweet baby finally has another connection to her momma. A whole new world just opened up to her! She can finally hear!
