Watch the adorable moment a baby hears her mother’s voice for the first time.
Alison Potts was born with a genetic hearing disorder – Waardenburg syndrome– and unknowingly passed it on to three of her eight children. The condition is a rare genetic disorder most often characterized by varying degrees of deafness as well as a white forelock of hair, skin pigmentation loss, in some cases cleft lip and pallet and issues with the heart.
Alison’s youngest, Ellianna, who is three-months-old, was one of the children born with the condition and was unable to hear her own mother’s voice. Not only that, the act of putting in the hearing aids made her screaming mad…
However, after receiving her first pair of hearing aids, the tot was shocked into silence when her mom started to sooth her. Take a look!
Since two of her siblings and her mom share the same disorder, this baby will grow up in a home surrounded by people who understand exactly what she’s going through.
