We hear a lot of sounds every day, don’t we? It starts with the dreaded alarm in the morning. There are pings of phone notifications, the sizzle of eggs on a pan, neighbours scolding their kids and traffic of course. We buy noise-cancelling headphones and listen to our favourite music. But have we ever thought of our hearing as a gift? If not, this might make us see things differently.
Carol Benjamin has two beautiful baby girls. Halie is older and Scarlet is 11-months-old. She took to Facebook to write this emotional post.
“When Scarlet was born she was 3 months early. She ended up getting NEC (and certain stomach infection) and the antibiotics that she needed, caused hearing loss.”
She decided to get her hearing aids. And the results were too precious for words.
Keep the tissues handy
As everyone knows when Scarlet was born she was 3 months early. She ended up getting NEC (and certain stomach infection) and the antibiotics that she needed cause hearing loss. It has been a LONG and emotional experience. She reacted to most sounds so we thought she could hear fairly well. After what I witnessed today, it was not as well as I thought. Hearing aids make a WORLD of difference! I am so blessed and thankful for Atlanta Hearing Associates in Milledgeville for all that they have done for our baby girl. Anyway, enjoy one of the absolute best days of our lives. By the way, I'm crying, you're crying, everyone is crying. 😍😍😍😭😭“To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org”

Scarlet’s pure joy on hearing Halie call her “baby sister” moved their mom (and everyone else) to tears. This heartwarming video has since gone viral with some people saying they’ve watched it over 5 times in a row.
In an interview with ABC News, Carol talked about all the other sounds her baby heard next – “We took her outside and she was listening to all the animals and was freaking out.” Such a heart-melting reminder to count our blessings and never take them for granted.
