'There's no name for what Nova has'

Staff writer

Parents of a two-year-old girl with cranial facial differences say they found "their normal" after watching an inspirational documentary on Barcroft TV.

When their daughter Nova Hunia was born with severely reduced hearing and breathing difficulties, the couple desperately searched the internet to find out how their future would look.

Acacia, 30, and Joseph Hunia, 29, from Wellington, New Zealand, were moved by an inspirational beauty vlogger named Marimar Quiora. The film made the young parents realise although Nova's facial differences may describe her, they won't define her.
