A Tulsa family is celebrating after the deaf little girl they adopted from China was able to hear for the first time - a moment they described as 'breathtaking':

Gifted a cochlear implant, Jayde Scholl now squeals and laughs with delight as she listens to the sound of her adoptive mother Jaque Scholl's voice.

On Tuesday the implant was switched on, marking the end of a two adoption process for Jayde after she spent the first four years of her life in a Chinese orphanage after being abandoned in a town square at the age of eight-months.
