Baby With Hearing Loss Hears His Father's Voice Clearly For First Time
There is a general understanding that humankind takes a lot of things for granted. We think that just because things are given to us when we are born, that they will stay with us forever. But in reality, this belief is entirely false. The faster we start to appreciate life, the more we get to live life to the fullest.
One of those underappreciated things is our ability to sense the environment around us. We are born with five senses, the ability to hear, to see, to smell, to touch and to taste. Often times during life, we experience a temporary loss of our senses, but they always come back, so we pay this temporary glitch no mind. However, some of us aren’t so lucky, and we get trapped in the vacuum of losing our senses when we are least expecting it.
This tiny tot, however, was born with two rare genetic disorders that left him without the ability to hear and to see. Little Elisha suffered from a Pierre Robin Syndrome and a Sticklers Syndrome. His mom said that this was the first step in helping him hear, but in the future, he will need different hearing aids. This video captures the first time 5-month-old Elisha hears his dad speak, and we can’t help but have our hearts melted. dad.
Hearing impairment is always a serious problem both for the child and for the parents. It is hard to reconcile that this tiny person will be deprived of the opportunity to perceive such a rich and incalculably diverse world of sounds for his or her entire life! It is painful to realize that this impediment can raise an invisible barrier between the baby and the surrounding people, which may isolate it from the world. However, this does not mean that the life of this child will be one of loneliness and isolation.
Deaf children are quite ordinary children. They also like to run, play, dance, have fun and play around, experiment with different objects, build, sculpt and paint. But very often they have no one to play with. Parents of hearing children do not encourage their communication with deaf people, and sometimes they also prevent such contacts. Why? Because the untrained, deaf child does not speak. Instead of articulating speech, they produce sounds, sometimes they use gestures and cannot if untrained, lip-read. This means the child is showing behavior very different from the peers with normal hearing, which, make isolate and even shun the child from the community.
Not every child gets to experience life the same way since birth. A lot of babies are born with certain disabilities that threaten to impede their way of life. However, we live in a day and age when technology can help these little humans get a taste of everything life has to offer. What a time to be alive!
