I first saw this on Saturday, and started to post it then, but I wanted to wait a few days to see if it was legitimate.
From the Today Show transcript:
Severely hearing impaired since birth, Sarah Churman had long managed to cope in a world where sounds came as if they were under water. But now, a surgical implant lets her hear her own voice, the sounds of birds singing, her two daughters chattering…
The pretty, 29-year-old Texan has became an internet sensation, thanks to a video taken by her husband, Sloan, as she heard her voice for the very first time last week. In the video, Sarah becomes overwhelmed with emotion, covering her mouth and bursting into tears, as she first hears herself talking. “I don’t want to hear myself cry,” she says and then laughs as she turns to her husband.
I was a bit skeptical at first but it appears that this is the first time she has been able to clearly understand and decipher her own voice in her entire life.
