You’ve probably already seen more than few videos featuring people who can hear or see for the first time thanks to modern technology and medicine. Those videos are a perfect reminder of what a wonderful time we live in! And this is one of those videos, but a bit more special.
Andrea Diaz got her cochlear implant, a surgically implanted electronic device that can replace the function of a damaged inner ear. It works by picking up and processing sounds, then delivering them directly to a person’s brain so one can hear even with damaged inner ear. But hearing her family and boyfriend for the first time is not the only surprise Andrea got at the doctor’s office. She got one even bigger one when her boyfriend proposed. Her reaction will make you weep with joy!
