Parents love celebrating their children's milestones, especially in the early years. Seeing your child talk and walk for the first time are some of the most blissful feelings ever.

But sometimes, families struggle to experience such simpler moments. Nonetheless, parents refuse to give up on their children and strive until everything works out for the best.

A GLIMMER OF HOPE

Something similar unfolded with a TikTok mother, Haley Miller, whose life changed when she welcomed her bundle of joy. While she and her husband were thrilled to embrace parenthood, what they then experienced came as a bolt from the blue.

As it turned out, their little angel's hearing was impaired, which meant he might never talk or hear. For some time, his parents felt incredibly heartbroken and clueless.

But thanks to advancements in medical science, the couple was introduced to a cochlear implant, a tiny, surgically implanted electronic device enabling a deaf child to hear properly.

TRULY HEART-MELTING

The TikToker @haleymariamiller shared her sweet baby's heart-melting reaction when his hearing equipment was switched on. Initially, the child couldn't stop crying, but his face lit up when he heard his parents' voice.

Cohen's implants would require an upgrade every few years, but his parents are hopeful about his bright future.

BRISBANE BABY HEARS FOR THE FIRST TIME

Much like the TikToker @haleymariamiller and her husband celebrating their baby's milestone of hearing for the first time, a couple from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, were lucky to experience something similar with their child.

Tamara Nevin and Brian Gorman welcomed their boy Cohen in March 2020. At seven weeks, they discovered that Cohen was profoundly deaf. The couple was shattered until the doctors told them about cochlear implants.

At eight-and-a-half months, Cohen underwent a three-hour surgery where the implants were installed in his ear. After a week, the devices were activated, and he could hear properly.

Three months later, the little angel enjoyed music and hearing his own voice. He had started interacting with other children at childcare and spoke words like "mumma" and "bubba." Cohen celebrated his first birthday on March 22. His mom told Daily Mail:

"Our hope is he'll have a normal childhood and life as possible (sic)."

Cohen's implants would require an upgrade every few years, but his parents are hopeful about his bright future. We're glad the TikTok mom's bundle of joy and the adorable Brisbane baby were given a new chance at life thanks to cochlear implants.
