    I'm so happy for this woman! I'm all choked up after watching the video.

    Thanks for sharing nurse!

    Daily Mail has more on the story:

    Deaf woman weeps in emotional video as she hears her own voice for the first time
    ---
    In response to [YouTube] viewers who were amazed at her ability to speak clearly, the formerly deaf woman said: 'My whole life I've been complimented on how well I speak.

    'I don't really have an answer for you other than I have always had a passion for reading, grammar, and English.

    'My hearing loss was/is considered severe to profound. I've worked very hard to be able to interact and blend in... only thing I can say is 'God is good'.'

    There is some controversy now due to the fact that she speaks with a slight southern drawl.

    If that made you tear up, see the follow up. I didn't see this Ellen show but my DD told me about it. I found this link and, I again teared up. With everything going on in today's world, all good news helps. Thanks Ellen.

    My husband is getting ready for the same Envoy Esteem implant. Sure hope he has a good reaction.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!

    Oh my gosh, if I weren't sitting in a starbucks I would be bawling like a baby.

    Both of my parents are deaf- what I would give for this for them!
