Hope

Aysel is the result of a relative marriage in accordance with old traditions of Turkmen. She was born blind. There has been 3 surgeries on her eyes so far and now she has an imperfect eyesight. Doctors are hoping as she grows up, she'll get part of her eyesight. I've tried hard to see the through eyes.
