“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength. ”
— Maya Angelou
My name is Sofia and I’m in third grade at my local public elementary school Sunset Ranch. I’m fully included in the classroom and I love to read and write in my journal. I use an iPad to type so I can keep up with my classmates. I love all sports including dance and cheer, Spanish class and anything music or theater related.
My story is one made for the movies. I was abandoned at birth and spent the first 14 months of my life in an orphanage in a very small town in Ukraine. My forever mom and dad found me on an adoption ministry website Reese’s Rainbow and came to get me in the Spring of 2010. I wasn’t able to do much before I met my mom and dad, but as soon as I got home to the United States, I began to thrive with the love of my 3 older brothers and loving parents and grandparents.
My mom and dad loved taking pictures of me and before I knew it my career began to take off! I love taking pictures and I’m really good at listening, following direction and I’m super patient. I love people and making friends. I am blessed to have the life I live.
