Need help with photo

Hi everyone!
A young boy gave me this photo of his Mom and ask if there was anything I could do to restore it. She lives in another country and the photo is all he has to remember her by for now. I've been playing around with it, but I'm just not real happy with my results. I was wondering if anyone here has time and would like to see what you can do with the picture. It would make one young man very happy.

Mary Ann, the chances are slim to none that your friend will think this looks like his mother.

I made two copies and Mirrored one as the top layer and erased and smudge painted.
The problem is, no ones face is the same on each side so it not symmetrical.

Awesome work, you continue to impress me. I would have given up before trying.... that picture was in awful shape. I hope the young man is as impressed as I am.

It only took a few minutes. In PSP, first I straightened the photo, then duplicated the layer, mirrored the 2nd layer, and started erasing parts I didn't need. The jawline and ear were what needed to be added, so after erasing the rest, I cleaned those up and merged the layers. Then I used the cloning tool for her facial skin, neck, shirt. and background. I also used the dodge/burn tool to create some shadows and highlights on the neck and collar. Then I cropped & saved.

I'm giving the print out of the photos to the boy tomorrow. I'll let you know what he says.

The counselor brought another boy to my office with a picture of his mother. LOL This one is a full length picture of his Mom standing by a Christmas tree. I plan to try to do this one myself, but definitely know where to come if I need help! You guys are the best!
