Deaf 2-Year-Old Cooper

Baby Cooper has never heard his mother’s voice.

Can you even imagine what it must be like for this toddler to experience this fifth sense after living in silence since birth?

The moment about 40 seconds in when he realizes that he can hear his mother's voice is pretty darn touching.

2- years old,Cooper was fitted with a cochlear implant, a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing. The implant is often referred to as a bionic ear.
