Sophie’s Brilliance

Six-year-old Sophie from Jiangxi has been waiting for a family to call her own since early 2010.  When LWB became aware of her availability through the Waiting Children Program, we immediately started collecting bits of information on her from people who have met her and from her LWB reports. Every piece of information portrayed Sophie in one light:  “Bright.”

Everyone’s comments about Sophie…her big eyes, her enthusiasm for life, her kindness and happiness…brought me back to this one word.  I think even these few photos of her reflect her bright personality.

She is a ray of sunshine that brightens the day of those around her.

Sophie is helpful in taking care of children younger than herself.  She has fun riding an adult size tricycle and  even enjoys cleaning the floor!  Her caretakers see her blossoming into a beautiful young girl.

She tries not to let her special need hold her back in life, although it can be difficult with her level of activity.  Another surgery is pending for Sophie, and hopefully after that there will be nothing to stop her from taking life by the reigns!

    We’ve been home just over 4 months now and we are doing GREAT! My daughter is an absolute joy! She recently told me in her newly aquired English “I happy” and that her favorite things to do are to “color with mama” and “play with mama.” Our experience of becoming a family has been easier than I ever thought it could be and we are thriving!
