Jennifer also asks if Down Syndrome is “scary.” Sofia answers, “No, it’s not scary! It’s so exciting!”
The Sanchez family sponsored Sofia when she was an orphan in the Ukraine. They fell in love with her, and they adopted her when she was 16 months old, and they are currently living in Rocklin, California.
Sanchez claims that her daughter’s own vision made such a big impact because some individuals are used to listening about Down Syndrome from outsiders who don’t really understand it.
