(DNAINFO) Ben Fractenberg — Alexandra Hobbs dreams about seeing her daughters for the first time.
Hobbs, 28, lost her eyesight at three years old when her optic nerve was damaged after suffering domestic abuse from her teenage father. Now she is fundraising to get stem cell treatment she hopes could help restore her vision.
“I really want to see what my girls look like. I want to know what everyone else keeps telling me,” Hobbs told DNAinfo while she played with her one-year-old daughter, Faith, and three-year-old daughter, Destiny, at her Chelsea building for visually impaired tenants.
