15 - Little Dominique

 

Zilina Children's Hospital,

Zilina, Slovakia

 

The sick little girl at the Zilina Children's Hospital looks at her

image in the mirror.  This gypsy child was left at the facility by

her mother, who was never seen again.  Full of charm and wit,

Dominicka is the apple of the doctors' and nurses' eyes.  The

genetic skin condition she suffers from would have resulted in

death, if Dominicka was a boy, according to the medical staff.
