1-year-old Hears for the First Time

A Texas couple is sharing the moment of their 1-year-old daughter hearing for the first time. It happens thanks to an amazing procedure, called the Auditory Brainstem Implant. She was diagnosed with Charge Syndrome, which left her deaf due to missing auditory nerves. Without auditory nerves, she was ineligible for a cochlear implant. She is the youngest patient to undergo this procedure. Doctors are unable to guarantee she'll be able to understand spoken words, even though she'll hear noise. Her parents hope that she'll be able to be part of the deaf and the hearing community. We live in a world full of possibilities.
