Down syndrome awareness and life after the loss of our son
Mile 63 – Sara. She is 5 years old. Her family adopted her from Ukraine in 2012 at the age of 10.5 months. She was left at the hospital because the doctor told her parents it was the right thing to do. Her parents terminated their rights when Sara was 3 days old and at the age of 7 days she was taken to an orphanage. She resided there until we came to adopt her. She is the youngest of 5 children. She is her family’s sunshine and joy! The things that she loves or that make her happy are chips, Cheezits, just food in general, school, music and dancing, and Masha and the Bear (Netflix cartoon originating in Russia/Ukraine). This picture was taken January 7. It was Christmas in Ukraine so her family celebrated put her in this outfit that they bought in Ukraine.
