Amy, Deaf Mother, Hears Her 6-Year-Old Son Say ‘Hi, Mom!’ For The First Time

This is a very moving video story. Here is the explanation put by the family on YouTube:

Takes a few minutes but worth the experience. Our niece has been deaf since she was born. She has never heard the sound of her parents voice or her 6 year old son, Blake. Every day for the next several months she will learn how sound works and where it comes from.
Update: thank you to everyone that appreciates and feels what a beautiful time this was and continues to be for Amy and our families. She is continuing her hard work of speech and sound therapy to distinguish what sound is. Her pronunciation has improved vastly and she can hear words and especially music! Naturally, after a lifetime of lip reading and signing, it is still necessary for her to rely on that skill to have conversation in a group. Every day is new and sometimes an exhausting experience. She loves the challenge to improve yet more and she is a joy to be around. By the way, Amy has a high school diploma and college degree! This girl never let anything get in her way to be her best!
Please don’t post ugly or inappropriate comments, we love her very much and if you can’t be supportive than keep your twisted thoughts and words to yourself.
