A toddler who's profoundly deaf has returned from hospital in Italy after an operation to try and help him to hear for the very first time.
One-year-old Finn Johnson from Stockton was born with a nerve missing from his ear to his brain.
It follows a massive fundraising effort by his parents Natalie Nixon & Nathan Johnson. The operation cost £40,000 - they still need to raise £23,000.
The pictures show brave little Finn after his operation.
