THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- What’s your favorite sound?

Birds chirping? Waves crashing onto the shore? Your children laughing?

What about water running out of a faucet or the sound of your tires on the road as you drive? Those may not seem like sounds anyone would cherish, but when you’re living Brandon Jones’ life, they might just be.

Jones has lived a life without sound, but his deafness has never prevented his success.

Now, at 24, Jones wants to hear the voices of the ones he loves.

In this edition of the Buckley Report, meet Jones and his mother, and see why a decision she felt she couldn’t make for her son years ago, he made for himself this year.

It's "love at first sound."
