Today, Gotta Watch is looking back at some of our favorite firsts from over the years. These videos are inspired by a touching video of a deaf woman hearing her own voice for the first time.

Deaf woman hears her voice for first time –¬†29-year-old Sarah Churman¬†was born with a hearing impairment, but her life changed dramatically after receiving¬†a hearing implant. Her husband Sloan filmed the moment she was introduced to a device that allowed her to hear for the first time in her life.

Brothers meet for first time –¬†Two brothers who grew up in separate houses meet each other for the first time in more than 75 years. What's¬†more astonishing is the fact that¬†the brothers actually lived just minutes away from one another the whole time.
