Two-year-old Nicolly Pereira had been blind and deaf since birth. But her mom believes in miracles and never lost faith that her daughter would one day see her face and hear her voice. So, after seven failed surgeries to restore her baby girl’s vision and hearing in her homeland of Brazil, she had one last hope – to travel to the United States for the miracle she had always dreamed of…

Little Nicolly was unable to see, hear, walk or talk. In fact, she was so far behind other children of her age that her mom, Daiana, thought that she was developmentally challenged.

When she was a baby, Nicolly was diagnosed with infant glaucoma. Sometimes called primary congenital glaucoma, the condition involves fluid building up around the eyes, which consequently affects vision. Sadly, it’s thought to affect one in 10,000 children. And, if untreated, it can cause permanent blindness.
