Deaf Newborn’s Reaction to Hearing Parents for the First Time is Priceless

Technology has come a long way in the medical field and has made leaps and bounds in improving the lives of those born with disabilities.

A YouTube video posted by parents Michelle and Toby Lever of their then 7-week-old son, Lachlan documented the precious moment when the boy — who was born with a hearing disability —  received his first hearing aids.

Lachlan was diagnosed with having moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears but thanks to technological advancements that was quickly resolved.

The infant’s reaction to hearing his mother say ” Hi, darling,” when his hearing aids were turned on is priceless.

According the YouTube description, Lachlan is now two years old and “doing remarkably well.”
