“It’s like the Girl Scouts—but these projects and goals serve the Lord,” Leyda explains.
Dark-eyed, dimpled, and pretty, Sophia is nevertheless far from fragile! She enjoys bowling and swimming, in addition to going to the movies, spending time with her girlfriends, and practicing her cosmetic artistry.
Family time is spent with her mom, dad, grandparents and beloved older sister Andrea.– but she especially enjoys visits to and from another sister who lives in Puerto Rico.
Leyda recalls that when she and Sophia moved from Hatfield to Allentown in 2015, the distance to reach Sophia’s orthotist in Philadelphia became a problem; so they located an orthotic provider closer to them. Unfortunately, the frequent return visits that Sophia’s adjustments required were lengthy and inconvenient.
