North Carolina boy Grayson Clamp was born without cochlear nerves. He was completely deaf, and even a cochlear implant didn’t work.
Clamp’s parents, Len and Nicole, found another option: an auditory brainstem implant. The only problem was that Grayson would be the first child in the United States to have that surgery – one where a microchip is implanted in the brain and interprets sound coming through the ear canals.
Much to everyone’s surprise, the surgery was successful, and recently, Grayson got to hear his father’s voice for the first time.
Prepare your face for smiling.
Here’s the video of Grayson hearing his father, Len’s voice for the first time:
Wooooooh! Is someone cutting onions in here?
