Vulnerable Toddler Waves at Dad Through Window in Powerful Image

A mother has shared an emotional and powerful image of her vulnerable two-year-old daughter waving at her dad through a window.

THE image was shared to highlight the importance of self isolation, especially for those considered highly vulnerable to Covid-19.

Emmie Gizatullin from Colchester, Essex, was born with a one in a million genetic condition called Kniest Dysplasia, which is the rarest form of dwarfism, and is isolating with her mum Hannah, 40, and brother Adam, 11, while her dad Marat, 49, works as a forklift driver.

Emmie’s condition means she struggles with breathing and is susceptible to infections, so the family decided the safest option was to isolate separately.

Marat visits each day and Emmie waits at the window to wave to her dad.
