My father is partially deaf - I know what it would do for him. I see every week how people get cut off from conversations and from life because they are partially deaf. Sometimes I notice it happening to me. And yes, I have seen a friend's completely deaf newborn come to life after an implant.

As someone who has been deaf since birth it is truly wonderful to see this video - to the person who made the sniping comment, I sincerely hope you never lose your hearing.
