It's great that Nat'l Geo found her. But, I would have loved to see Nat'l Geo do something for her and her family, such as pay for her children's education. It would cost so little to do that, probably less than one of the photographer's flights. They could sponsor her children's education through the Central Asia Institute, for example. I think that would have made a rather beautiful ending to this story and for a person and family who has endured so much suffering.
