We’ve all seen some of the incredible videos of deaf people hearing for the first time, thanks to new technologies that make it possible. Every time we swear we’re not going to cry, and every time we’re wrong. Well, this video is similar, but with a twist. A five year old boy had paralyzed vocal cords and a speech professional was guiding him to use an Electrolarynx for the first time.

Seeing his smile and surprise at being able to communicate did it to us again. NO YOU’RE CRYING!!!!!!!! In the comments, his mom talks about his upcoming surgeries to eventually correct the paralysis, but for now, it’s fantastic to see that little guy smile when he can talk to his brother and mom.
