WARNING: THERE WILL BE TEARS.

Seen here looking suspiciously like Kevin Arnold's mother from The Wonder Years, 40-year old Jo Milne hears for the first time thanks to cochlea implants. I cried. Then I got embarrassed and started yelling at the person filming for recording in portrait mode. Wow, portrait mode, really -- what's the hell's the matter with you?! Then I cried some more.

Keep going for the video. It's sweet.

Thanks to Weezel, Pat and Evan, who never take their hearing for granted and always remove their headphone to listen for cars before crossing the street.
