I’ll let the video do the talking here, but do yourself a favor and watch this.

I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time πŸ™‚ Edit: For those of you who have asked the implant I received was Esteem offered by Envoy Medical.

We are very aware that some folks think this is not real, and we are only assuming the best. Β Also, it is Friday so this is a good lead in into the weekend.

    My little brother is deaf but wouldn’t benefit from this type of technology. I have cried everytime I see this video because I’m so happy for you. My little brother can feel the vibrations but has told me that he’d really like to know what I sound like and I hope and pray that some day technology will grant him his wish. God bless you for posting this inspiration!
