Joanne Milne has never heard a single sound in all of her 39 years.

That all changed earlier this month.

Four weeks ago Joanne received special implants at a hospital in England.  And then she had to wait almost 30 days for the devices to be turned on, not knowing if they would work or not.

Earlier this week, her mom videotaped her daughter when they were finally switched on.  The audiology specialist recited the days of the week as Joanne, hearing her first sounds ever, became overwhelmed with emotion, bursting into tears.

Upon seeing this video for the first time I did the same thing.
