When little Corlena failed her hearing test at birth, she was diagnosed with hearing loss in both ears, CNN reports. But after spending the first five months of her life in silence, she was finally able to experience sound for the first time. Her reaction? Well, let's just say if it doesn't completely melt your heart, you might want to get checked for Scrooge syndrome.

Corlena was able to get hearing aids thanks to Missouri First Steps and the Moog Center for the Deaf, finally giving her the chance to hear her happy family.

And judging by the huge smile on her face, she likes what she's hearing.
