A New Jersey toddler just heard his mothers voice for the first time — and his reaction will make your day.
Kaiden Orantes was diagnosed with progressive hearing loss at birth, but doctors have been unable to determine the cause of the 2-year-old’s impaired hearing. However, in a mission to improve his sense, they decided to outfit him with hearing aids.
In the heartwarming video, Kaiden is captured experiencing the device for the first time. The moment he hears the sweet sound of his mother’s voice, he immediately breaks into the happiest jig you’ve ever seen. “Can you hear me?” his mom, Caitlin, asks, as Kaiden continues to dance and hug his surrounding loved ones.
Caitlin told ABC News that even before being able to hear clearly, he was intrigued by music. “He is super drawn to music, that’s something he can hear surprisingly well,” she said. Now that he has assistance from the earpieces, she hopes to get her son into music classes.
