Break out the tissues: Australian parents Toby and Michelle Lever posted a video on YouTube of their infant son hearing for the first time and it’s making us feel all of the feelings.
“Our beautiful son Lachlan was diagnosed as having moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears,” Toby explains in the video description. “His reaction when [the hearing aids] were turned on was truly amazing. We cried from happiness.”
In the clip, the 7-week-old’s cries turn into wonder as he hears his parents’ voices for the very first time.
Such a beautiful moment.
The video was taken in 2012, but wasn’t posted until a few weeks ago. Since then, it’s been making the rounds on the Internet and now has more than 8.7 million views.
But the best news is that Lachlan, now two, is an “extremely happy chatterbox,” according to his parents.
We’re extremely happy that they shared this heartwarming video.More On
