Down Syndrome Girl Hears For First Time

A girl with Down Syndrome has shown the joy the gift of hearing can bring, lighting up when her cochlear implants were activated for the first time. The emotional moment took place in Cleveland Clinic Children’s hospital recently, where 3-year-old Grace Rosian, was able to properly hear the world around her for the first time. Grace, who was born prematurely at 33 weeks, has been a routine visitor to the clinic over recent years, as she has previously beating leukemia twice and had to undergo intensive chemotherapy. The three-year-old underwent surgery to treat her severe and profound hearing loss, and her mom, Valeria Revell-Rosian wasn’t sure what to expect when her implants were switched on. When the moment arrived, and her implants were activated, Grace’s eyes widened. Not yet able to walk, she began to scoot backwards, apparently an attempt to move from the unfamiliar sounds. However, Valerie, Grace’s father, Josh, and 4-year-old brother, Robert, recognized that as a step in the right direction.
