Grab a tissue. The Chive has posted an adorable video of Cooper, a 2-year-old toddler, hearing his mom’s voice for the first time.

Cooper was fitted with a cochlear implant, a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing. The implant is often referred to as a bionic ear.

At :30 seconds, Cooper squeals with excitement when he hears his mom’s voice.
