This is great news all round, but some of you may find yourselves crying when you watch the video.
Dawn Keim suffered from a condition which sadly resulted in her losing her hearing. After 15 years, she was fitted with a cochlear implant (November last year). What you see in the video is her about to hear her youngest son’s voice for the first time. He’s aged eight.
She’s nervous, naturally, worried she might not hear him. But then he enters the room, calling out to her, “hey Mum, can you hear me?” and she does! She looks so excited, laughing and replying, “yes”, to him.
Then he runs up to her. They hug. They cry. She kisses him. Holds him. She says, “Now you can talk to me. I can hear you”. He replies, “I love you”. She says, “I love you too”.
Beautiful tender touching moment captured between mother and son. Just beautiful.
