Scarlet was born three months early and contracted a serious bacterial infection, which kept her in neonatal intensive care unit. The medication she needed caused hearing loss, but it was what she needed to fight the infection. Now at 11 months old, this precious baby girl finally got to test some fitted hearing aids. Scarlet could finally hear — and the first thing she did after hearing clearly for the first time was to laugh uncontrollably.
