CAPTION: Lying in her cot, baby Valentina smiles up at her doting mother. "I wanted our baby to have her own room", says her father, "and to grow up like a princess". Arranging corrective surgery for their little girl was this young couple's highest priority after she was born with a cleft lip. LOCATION: Volzhskiy, Volgograd Oblast, Russia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Valentina Panteleeyeva (below) and Nina Panteleeyeva (right).
