In honor of Mother's Day, Children's Health in Dallas, TX, wants to highlight "the power of a mother's love" in a very special way. In a video posted to the hospital's Facebook page, 10-year-old Jaylin, who just received cochlear implants, can be seen putting together how her new devices work.

"So whenever people talk, the sounds will go in my ear," she deduces. "Oh my gosh!" The little girl then becomes emotional as her mom, who's filming her, asks a few times, "Can you hear Mommy?" Finally, Jaylin nods — she can hear her — and her mom says, "I love you." Jaylin barely gets out an "I love you, too, Mommy" before bursting into tears again, and phew, can someone pass me a tissue?

Watch the full video above to see Jaylin's sweet reaction to her mom's voice — you'll never take an "I love you" for granted again.
