It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.

about me

My name is Sofia and I’m starting 2nd 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.
