As a new mom, we often take for granted that our baby will hear our voice right away after birth (and even spend hours during pregnancy talking to our unborn child in hopes it will help them bond to us more quickly).

So imagine the heartache that can happen if your baby is born without the gift of hearing.

While it doesn't make you love your new child any less, it does make it more difficult to bond with your baby, not to mention future implications of how they will understand and communicate with you and the rest of your family.

Baby Charly was born with hearing issues, but watch the exact moment when she hears her mom's voice for the very first time:

CHARLY HEARS FOR THE FIRST TIME AND HEARS ME SAY I LOVE YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME!!! (Watch til the end)And she's holding back happy tears and emotional as her mama. 😭😭😭 We had our miracle moment that I have been praying for when Char got her hearing aids today. We didn't think she would hear anything so this was more incredible than I can put in to words. Her journey to implants and language development is off to an amazing start! #charlyshearingjourney #hearingaids #profoundhearingloss #deaf #babyhearsforthefirsttime #firsttimehearing #cochlear #2monthsold * Jukin Media Verified * Find this video and others like it by visiting For licensing / permission to use, please email licensing(at)jukinmedia(dot)com.

Isn't that an incredible moment? I love the range of emotions Charly experiences in just a matter of seconds.

We need more reminders like this of exactly what is important in life.
