Scarlet was born three months prematurely, weighing almost 3 pounds. She ended up getting necrotizing enterocolitis and the antibiotics led to her losing her hearing. Since then, her parents have been doing everything they can to get her hearing back. And finally they managed to get hearing aids for their precious little girl.
And this is the adorable moment, 11-month-old Scarlet tries hearing aids and hears her mother and sister’s voice for the first time. And her reaction just made my day!
As everyone knows when Scarlet was born she was 3 months early. She ended up getting NEC (and certain stomach infection) and the antibiotics that she needed cause hearing loss. It has been a LONG and emotional experience. She reacted to most sounds so we thought she could hear fairly well. After what I witnessed today, it was not as well as I thought. Hearing aids make a WORLD of difference! I am so blessed and thankful for Atlanta Hearing Associates in Milledgeville for all that they have done for our baby girl. Anyway, enjoy one of the absolute best days of our lives. By the way, I’m crying, you’re crying, everyone is crying. 😍😍😍😭😭
