Well, I have already had several friends contact me about the picture on the front of the book I recommended. I knew a little about it, but I tracked down 'the rest of the story.' This picture was made in 1985 and was called simply AFGHAN GIRL. It was on the cover of National Geographic. To read the rest of this interesting account go to the website below. I tried to link to it, but it's just not happenin'. There you will see her as she is today. Those eyes...aren't they amazing?

Wow Tonja...You are quite the detective! Reading what she and her family have been through certainly serves to show how blessed we are here...and to remind me of how many people in the world need our prayers. Thanks for the work you did in tracking this's a very eye-opening post and I appreciate it.
