When Ahavah and Jason Cook found out their newborn son Elijah had failed four hearing tests, they were devastated. Hearing problems run in both of their families, so although it was a surprise, it wasn't completely unexpected.
Elijah was confirmed to be profoundly deaf in his left ear and could only hear 75 decibels in his right. But thankfully, at nine-weeks-old, the baby boy was fitted with a special pair of hearing aids, which allowed him to hear for the very first time!

"The first time I saw him blink, I had a lot of emotions," Ahavah said on the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota website.
"I was trying really hard not to cry...He wasn't very talkative [in the beginning], but ever since he was fitted for his hearing aids, he's cooing more, he pays more attention."
