History of the child
Sonya Kononovich is a little angel! This 4-year-old girl lives in her own wonderful world, where people do not walk and understand each other without words. Sonya has cerebral palsy.
Sonya is special child from birth. The umbilical cord was wrapped around the neck of the baby so tight, that Sonya almost suffocated. The girl was born very weak. Actually she was too weak to cry or to eat … She could only sleep. Even now Sonya is a sleepyhead… and a loner. She can play on her own for hours. And even when Yaroslav – the younger brother – says to her something, the girl only looks and smiles. Sonya cannot think about tomorrow, but she knows how to live in the present moment. She looks thoughtfully at the children playing, people passing by and smiles … at everyone
Sonya cannot think about tomorrow,
but she knows how to live in the present moment.
In spite of everything Sonya is a happy girl: she has a mother, Vika, a father, Vasya, and a brother, Yaroslav, she has a cozy home, nice toys and clothes. The only thing missing for little angel’s complete happiness is a wheelchair, that will enable her to travel and discover the world.
Let’s help Sonya to “travel”!
