CAPTION: Stella explores the living room in her Volgograd flat. Her mother knew during her pregnancy that she would be born with a cleft lip, as an ultrasound scan picked it up. "We decided to continue with the pregnancy regardless", Armena relates. "I was told by the doctor that I would be able to get a good result from an operation in Volgograd, so that calmed me down a lot". LOCATION: Volgograd, Russia.
