WATCH: Deaf Baby Hearing Mom Say “I Love You” for the First Time Is Too Precious for Words


One of my favorite things about kids is their authenticity and empathy. In adults, it can be hard to find someone who is unashamedly genuine.

But kids are different. They’re unapologetically authentic. Their hearts are sincerely pure and it radiates out of them in unbelievable ways.

Like when 2-month-old baby Charlotte held back happy tears after hearing her mama say “I love you” for the first time.

Charly, as they call her, was born on August 2, 2017.

Shortly after her birth, Charly’s mom, Christy Keane, and her husband learned their precious little angel is deaf.

She was fit for hearing aids a few months after her birth, and when the time came for her ears to be turned on, Christy shared a video of Charly hearing her mom’s voice for the first time.

Christy wrote that they didn’t think Charly would be able to hear anything when doctors turned on the hearing aids. So it was the “miracle moment” that Christy had been praying for when Charly responded to the sound of her voice!

Her reaction is sheer joy as the small baby chokes back tears!

“This was more incredible than I can put in to words!” Christy wrote.

Charly is expected to undergo surgery for cochlear implants sometime next year. Until then, we’ll just keep pressing replay on her adorably sweet reaction!
