17-Year-Old Severely Burned as Kid in Iraq Gets New Face and Home

Teeba Marlowe, 17, from Iraq was given a new chance at life thanks to a woman in the U.S. When Teeba was a little girl, she suffered second- and third-degree burns on her head and face. Barbara Marlowe of Cleveland, Ohio, saw a photo of Teeba in the newspaper. Since Marlowe couldn’t have children of her own, she wanted to adopt Teeba to give her a better life. Marlowe secured a visa and surgeons to make it happen. “It was a giant leap of faith,” she said.
