You may know that my father is deaf.  Well, I should say "was" deaf.  He had a cochlear implant a few years ago.  I'll never forget the first time he called me on the phone.  I was 27-years-old.  We both cried in that moment and I'm not embarrassed to admit that.  I had never talked to my dad on a phone before, and never thought I would.  He still brings that moment up from time to time as one of the happiest of his life.

That's why when I saw this video I knew I had to share it.  Joanne is about to hear music for the very first time. She also had an implant put in.  Her reaction brought some tears to my eyes in the happiest of ways.  Technology really is an amazing thing.
