Ellianna was only 3 months old when one of the most important moments in her life happened. Luckily, her experience was captured on film to look back on forever.
Ellianna’s mom, Alison Potts, had a genetic hearing disorder called Waardenburg syndrome, which she passed on to three of her eight children, Ellianna being the third.
In the video below, posted on August 14, 2017, Alison holds Ellianna up. She and the doctor attach a pair of hearing aids to her daughter’s lobes and cartilage. At first, the hearing aids aren’t exactly a hit with Ellianna.
The precious baby girl in pink suddenly bursts into tears and screams out loud, expressing just how uncomfortable she feels.
Ellianna keeps crying until her mom lifts her up to face her. Alison begins speaking to her youngest child, and instantly, Ellianna’s face freezes.
She stares at her mom, realizing that she can hear her voice properly for the first time ever. Soon, her surprised expression melts into an adorable smile. She can’t seem to get enough of her mother’s voice and completely lights up at the sound of it.
I guess nothing comes to close to the simplest comforts, like a mother’s gentle voice.
Check out Ellianna’s reaction to hearing her mom for the first time, and please SHARE if you think the hearing aids will change this baby girl’s life for the better!
