About Me

Sofia was born 10 days early by c-section on September 18, 2009. She was born a healthy baby, but survived an acquired brain injury due to contracting a late onset Group b Strep bacterial meningitis infection one month after her birth on October 19, 2009.

After admission through Shady Grove Hospital’s ER to their PICU for one night, she was helicoptered to the PICU at Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC) in Washington, DC where she spent two weeks on life support. She stayed in CNMC for one month total, which included two weeks in their PICU, then two weeks on their neurology main floor. Sofia was discharged and came home on November 12, 2009.

As a result of the infection, Sofia is developmentally delayed and has neurological-related conditions including: diabetes insipidus, cortisol deficiency, cortical vision impairment (CVI), cerebral palsy (CP), myoclonic jerks, and sensory integration disorder.

Thank you for visiting Sofia's Kiddie Pool. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
