6.25.14 Dedication – Sophie

Jake adores little Sophie! He always makes a point to say hello and give her a hug when he sees her. Just look at her smile, ADORABLE!!! Here are pics of her going on the bus the first day of Pre-K and at graduation. A prim and proper little lady!

Shout out hello to her Mom, Dad and brother too. Mom Erin is co-chair of the Mid-Atlantic region.

“As I reflect over the last 3 years I can’t help but consider myself so lucky for the amazing individuals who have helped Sophie grow and blossom. (Recently) Sophie graduated from one of her preschools only this one she has attended over the last 3 years. Sophie attended a “typical” preK program… as well as a special Ed program through our county which she started attending right after her 3rd birthday. Sophie has been fortunate to have the most amazing teachers and therapists who truly care about Sophie’s potential and all that she is! When you send your child off to school you can only hope they are touched by individuals who genuinely love their job and are there to make a difference in a child’s life. The staff at Stone Mill Elementry school showed not less then the best! This post is dedicated to them!

Sophie has made strides that I could not have even dreamed of when she was just 3 years old and getting on that big yellow bus for the first time. She proves to exceed all expectations and show any preconceived beliefs to be incorrect! Sophie is my superstar and I am so grateful to those who help her strive to her fullest potential. Next year Sophie will enter Kindergarten at our neighborhood home school, Ritchie Park Elementry School. She will be fully included with her typical peers and we are looking forward to this next step in our journey.
