After 17 years....I can hear underwater!

For the past seventeen years, Jordan has experienced water in silence. He's been swimming since our first Mommy and Me swim class when he was six months old, and he has never heard the sounds of underwater. We live twelve minutes from the beach in Tuscany and for the past seventeen years he has read my screaming lips to not go too far out in the sea, or to stop splashing his sister.
Today, for the first time in his life, thanks to the Cochlear Acqua Accessory, he could wear his processor underwater.
He wanted me to tell everyone, "I heard the silence of the sea..."
