A video of this adorable baby hearing for the first has gone viral. Little two-month-old Charlotte was born deaf on August 2, 2017, but her parents didn't know for a few weeks. Charly, as they call her, is seen in the video, below, as she is fitted for her very first hearing aids.
Christy Keane took to Instagram two weeks prior, to share the story of her little girl's diagnosis. This is what she said. "So I am ready to open up publicly about something our family is dealing with- our sweet Charlotte is deaf (bilateral profound congenital hearing loss). We don't know why or have any answers beyond that at this time, but we have taken the last few weeks to process the information. Neither my husband nor myself have a history of hearing loss in our families and nothing really prepared us for this news but WE WILL ALL OVERCOME. This is shocking news, but it's not sad news."
"This sweet baby is beautiful and healthy and so capable of achieving everything she wants in life and we will make sure that happens! I would absolutely LOVE to connect and hear from any families who have been through this as we have no idea what to expect."
"Moving forward- Charly will be fit for her hearing aids in two weeks which will not make her hear but will get her brain and auditory nerve used to vibrations and stimulation as we wait to undergo surgery for cochlear implants (in about a year). We are so lucky to have such an amazing support system who will make this girl feel nothing less than loved, worthy, and completely normal!" Watch the incredible video, below, and see the moment Charly “hears” her mom say, "I LOVE YOU!"
