When baby Lachlan was diagnosed with moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears, his mother was understandably panicked.
"I thought Lachlan would not be able to talk, make friends and I was worried he would get teased," his mom, Michelle Lever, admitted to the Daily Mail Australia. But as the video below shows, 7-week-old Lachlan is able to hear for the very first time after being fitted with a special hearing aid.
"When they turned the headphones on and Lachlan smiled and his face lit up, it was the most magical thing I’d ever seen in my life," Michelle recalled. "It's such a happy, special moment. My baby’s world just opened up."
Originally filmed in 2012, the minute-and-a-half clip is now making its way around the internet. Michelle told the paper that Lachlan continues to "amaze" her with his speech development at age two.
