    Hearing Impaired Girl Sends Thank U Letter to Seahawk Derrick Coleman

    'I have faif in you': Adorable letter hearing impaired girl, 9, wrote to deaf Seahawk Derrick Coleman to thank him for inspiring her

    Little Riley Kovalcik, from Roxbury, New Jersey, penned the note to Coleman Sunday

    She and her identical twin sister, Erin, who is also hearing impaired, were moved by a Duracell ad about his journey to be the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL

    The sisters were then glued to the TV as Coleman helped Seattle beat the San Francisco 49ers and make it through to this year's Super Bowl

    Her dad, Jake Kovalcik, tweeted the touching letter to the sportsman saying, you've inspired my little girls in a way I never could. THANK YOU!

    The Seahawks retweeted the photo of the note and it has now gone viral

    In the letter, Riley calls Coleman her inspiration and tells hm 'I know how you feel'
