It's hard to find a news story that can bring me tears of happiness. But I have to admit, I got a little misty over this one. This is a story about a dad who, through technological advances has been given the gift of hearing after being deaf for more than 50 years. And this gift came just in time to hear his 15-year old daughter sing.

Check out this heartwarming report on KSDK.com, as father Ken Stehle gets to hear his daughter's singing voice for the first time. As you listen, you'll notice Stehle's daughter Ashley has a beautiful voice. But it's 1 million times more beautiful to this proud dad.

Admit it, you teared up a bit, right? I couldn't imagine a proud father receiving a better Christmas gift.
