Miracle Surgery Had 4 Year Old Hear this Thanksgiving

These US Thanksgiving is a very special one for Nicholas Soma.

It’s his first Thanksgiving that he will sit down with his family and actually be able to hear them.

He was born with the continental defect, affecting his outer ear cartilage and ear canal.

His malformed ears and absence of ear canals meant he was mostly deaf.

His parents never stop looking for a solution. With the help of family, supporters and donations from Hawaii residents they were able to pay for the reconstructive surgeries by two doctors in California.

Nicolas now doesn’t need any hearing aid and looks like any other kid.
