Hearing For The First Time

September 30th, 2011 by in Videos

A feel-good-as-fuck video of 29-year-old Sarah Churman:

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 :)

For you mothers out there…….it was like that moment where time stands still as your baby slips into this world…….I just started crying, then crying more because I could hear myself crying. Then laughing, then freaking out over my laugh. That lead to the shakes and partial hyperventillating. Then the tapping of the keys as the nurse lady did something on the computer, followed by the remote being set down on the counter…….I could HEAR it!!!
