WATCH: Deaf Woman Hears Her Voice For First Time

Pure joy! Sloan Churman, 29, was born deaf and has relied on hearing aids her whole life, but two month ago she was outfitted with an Esteem hearing implant and her husband recorded this heart-wrenching video, above. Sloan, who uploaded this video to YouTube, writes: "I had an implant put in 8 weeks ago called The Esteem Implant by Envoy Medical. I was born deaf and have worn hearing aids from the age of 2, but hearing aids only help so much. I have gotten by this long in life by reading lips. This was taken as they were activating the implant."
