CBS DETROIT – For all the discouraging stories we read about athletes setting awful examples, there are the stories like this one. Inspired by what Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman has accomplished even while being legally deaf since he was a child, two little girls who are hearing-impaired wrote him a letter, and he wrote back.

The girls are among Coleman’s biggest fans, and as the video shows, the very idea of meeting the man they call their “inspiration” leaves the girls positively and adorably giddy. Then, of course, Coleman appears.

The resulting interaction is one that will warm your heart. Enjoy.
