Mom Catches Sweet Moment Deaf Dad Confesses Love To Deaf Baby

One of the many tests administered to newborns is a hearing screening. That's because babies learn best through listening and hearing in the early stages of life, especially since their vision is still developing.
Research has shown that newborns instantly recognize their mom's voice from having listened to it while growing in utero. Studies show that during the seventh and eighth month of a pregnancy, a baby's heart rate will slow down whenever Mom is speaking, indicating that her voice has a calming effect, according to Parenting.
Since hearing is so important, it's crucial that medical professionals glean right away whether or not a baby is experiencing hearing difficulties. In fact, one to three out of every 1,000 babies born in the U.S. have hearing levels that lie outside the typical range of normal hearing, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Early identification of hearing issues means these wee ones will receive intervention services from the very start that will help in the development of their communications skills and language. One beautiful little girl named Arrow was born at 25 weeks weighing just one pound and 15 ounces and did not pass her hearing test.
Thousands of people have fallen in love with this tender moment shared between a daddy and his daughter, a moment that shows the strength of unspoken love. A Facebook user translated what Dad is saying and it appears he was confessing his love for her.
"I'm daddy! I'm your daddy. You beautiful girl. Green eyes. You're cute. You're cuuuuute. I love you. I love you."
Arrow's mom shared on her Instagram page that their "little squish" would not experience the same difficulties growing up that her daddy had, thanks to their regular use of ASL.
"She won't have the struggles to communicate within her own family as her Daddy did."
