The heartwarming moment of a deaf baby hears her mother’s voice for the first time.

The mother’s voice is often among the first sounds a baby hears. But for infants with hearing loss, that precious moment is usually delayed.

When Christy and Daniel Keane realized their newborn daughter, Charlotte, was not responding to vocal cues and noises, they brought her to the doctor and discovered the baby was suffering from hearing loss. They decided to get hearing aids for 2-month-old Charlotte. As a result, Christy got to watch (and record) her daughter’s amazing reaction as she heard mom say, “I love you” for the very first time.

Christy decided to share a video of this touching moment on Facebook, and fair warning—you might want to grab some tissues. Take a look at the priceless footage below:

Well it appears this little sweetheart has stolen hearts and attracted some new followers around here with her viral video so I figured I would introduce our #darlingcharly and give a little background on her hearing loss. Charlotte was born completely deaf (bilateral profound congenital hearing loss). We don’t know why or have any answers beyond that at this time. Neither my husband nor myself have a history of hearing loss in our families and nothing really prepared us for this news (shocking news, but not at all sad news). This sweet baby is beautiful and healthy and so capable of achieving everything she wants in life and we will make sure that happens! She got her hearing aids last week and we were prepared for ZERO response- so imagine our surprise and delight when she gave us such heartfelt emotion. She is amazing! We are exploring American Sign Language and plan to pursue cochlear implants when she is old enough! We are so lucky to have such an amazing support system who will make this girl feel nothing less than loved, worthy, and completely normal! #hearingloss #deaf #hearingaids #asl #cochlearimplants #charlyshearingjourney
