She wants to hold your hand (Sophia’s mother) I’d like to hold your hands Thank you for coming and holding my hand Do you prefer to make new friends? Sophia shakes her head Thank you for telling me, “Yes.” Do you like Sofia? I love her so much, yes Yeah Why do you like her? its just … It’s just something. You are supposed to love your family but that’s not the only thing Love her more than your family is supposed to love her I love her the most in my whole life Her face is small, although I can’t squeeze her cheeks. I just want it badly When I see her picture I just press her cheeks “fake” because I really want it I love her, she is the nicest girl I’ve ever met And I love her so much True ? She knows that.I’ve told her thousands of times Welcome to SBSK Come with me as I travel the world I interviewed individuals in cases To prove that no matter how you communicate Or what are the obstacles you face You are always worthy of love and acceptance Now, without hesitation, let’s meet a friend today Sophia, do you like sitting there with your mother? Yes I like to sit with you, Sofia Yes, I do. Do you love when your mother kisses you? You want me to kiss you again? Is that m .. Yes Yes I’ll give you a kiss “Moah” Yes, you want another kiss? “Moah” I see your dimples under your eyes, you smile. Her most sensitive tickling point, when she blows on her neck, laughs a lot She’s trying to catch her. She’s like me, when people try to tease me, I try to catch her. It has had a big impact on her brother and sister They look at her and see their sister It is not a big problem when they see other people who are helpless and different I feel more sympathetic and more accepting Will you always love your sister? Yes forever How do you know that even when I’m 17, I’ll love her 17 !? When I’m at 17, she’ll be at at 80 I hope that children know that Sofia is like them They may look different and their capabilities may be different, but … But inside it is a pure, 9-year-old girl who wants to make friends and wants to be loved And you want to accept it like them Is this true Sophia? Yes Yes You like to have friends, don’t you? You like to have friends Are we friends ? Yeah I also think we are friends We are no doubt friends Sophia grabs my hand again Thank you for holding my hand again What’s the best thing about your sister? The best thing about my sister, I love her smile so much They are nice with all the people you see Even with people you don’t know much, she is nice to them.True Sophia? She’s trying to hit the “Yes” button. Yes, yes Look, this is the greatest thing I love about my sister Wool, do you like your sister too? Yeah? Sophia is shaking her head Ok, that means yes. How did you know? Because she did it “nodded” How would you describe Sofia’s way of communicating? Well, because of Sophia’s case Sometimes you use the button to communicate Sometimes she uses specific gazing and where she can choose something with her eyes Sometimes she crosses words and with Sophia I can look at her eyes and understand what she is saying What people don’t realize is that you really don’t need many words to understand each other Because of her condition changes moment by moment We give her the opportunity to communicate in any way she can Yeah How do you feel when your sister communicates? I’m really proud and surprised I’m really proud of it.That’s one of the things I’m proud of Take her time to respond to this is what my mother tells me Yeah Yeah Take some time. If you ask Sophia, do you want to go downstairs? Or do you want to stay up here? Take some time to inform you But later you will do so you should only give it some time to inform you I am very pleased to be here with you Sofia I’m really happy to hear your story, but most of all I’m happy to be your friend I am happy to sit here with you, look into your eyes, to communicate with you To share your smile Are you also happy to make new friends? Yeah Thank you, me too I’m here in front of your face as always I’m here You are tired of me Did you twist your eye towards me? Do you want to show them how you twisted your eyes? Do you want to show them? You’re really good at that.Yeah? Do you see it every day? Sophia: Daily She twists her eyes at me once a day, sometimes more when I have to do medical things with her I like how Sophia is so nice She gives love to everyone Are really nice with everyone yes Every day I tell Sofia that she is the most beautiful girl on the planet And that no one else like her yes By the way she always agrees There is no one like her in the world that makes it very unique Why is it important to give your sister kisses? Because it’s nice What is the most beautiful thing in it? She just .. Her feet are beautiful because they are so small and beautiful Her little hands are so beautiful, and her little face Her feet, every part. Her legs, her arms. As a whole thing because she’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen “Moah” kiss and I am very happy to have it as a sister We don’t even know when Sofia will be with us So it’s important to tell her that I love her every day Yeah It is important for her to know that she is very much loved Yes, this way tell her every day The number one thing I want to tell you is what your family tells you every day You’re as wonderful as you are.Thank you You should be proud of yourself You should be happy Yes Yes becasue you are wonderful I want to accept and integrate into this world I want to make disability and facial abnormalities normal I used to hide in the first 7 years of her life because I experienced a lot of cruelty and discrimination in treatment The most interesting thing I’ve ever been told was probably when she said thank you “when I gave her a kiss I told her I love you and she said clearly thank you and .. It was surprising Even my father heard it. He dropped his apple because he was very surprised If we remain silent and disguised it will be impossible to have a chance to change There will be no acceptance If we don’t do * Sophia pronounces * Yeah ! If we don’t get out of there and share our story When I look at my sister, I always think she’s thinking about something But it’s like she’s thinking about something happy about us As if they think of something happy to do something When we go to my aunt Jojo’s swimming pool She always sprinkles me and this gives me beautiful memories If parents with their children, they saw your family outside in the grocery store What do you want them to do? I would like parents to bring their children to Sofia above Just say hello And treat them like everyone else yes Many times people will avoid us, treat us differently Or parents keep their children silent away because they have questions * Sophia pronunciation * Yes I know We don’t want them to feel that we should move away quickly This sends the wrong impression.We want children to be able to ask Sophia: Yes yes we do Parents may be embarrassed if they say something wrong But I just want them to know that this is good It’s the only way we can teach children about differences It seems like I can’t stop looking at it because it’s so nice If she thinks something is bad, and if she goes through a bad day, walk to her room It just refreshes my day.All the good stuff If you could tell the whole world one thing about your sister, what would it be? It’s as beautiful as you are Why do you think it is so easy for those who are not familiar with Sophia’s misunderstanding? Because they don’t take the time to get to know them I think we see people and if we don’t get this moment Yes, yes? If we don’t get this moment, okay. This person will look like me, talk like me, they are just like me Then we reject them I think you have to take the time to get to know her until you see her personality And it’s very bold once you do this So I think people are used to it If they don’t see something, it usually leads to tears and will stop you If someone meets her and doesn’t think she is like us Maybe later in the day she falls in love with her because she is very nice I just want the world to know that Sofia is different Yes However, she is a 9 year old girl They are beautiful and wonderful Is the definition of the power of true beauty She has gone through a lot in this life and yet remained positive, happy and beautiful And I just want them to be accepted in this world I am the happiest person in the world by having a sister like you I love you so much What does love mean the love ? Love means .. It is when, love means You are To take care of someone very much, to give kisses on a forehead, on an arm Just as I give her kisses everywhere, I give her on her arms, her hands, her forehead, her feet On her other hand, her arm, her leg Usually tickle it a lot Yes This means a lot to me that you take all your energy and all your effort to communicate It shows me that * Sophia pronunciation * Yes, it shows me that you care about our friendship and our relationship as well * Sofia pronunciation * Thank you for sitting with me Thank you for talking to me * Sofia pronunciation * Thank you for watching SBSK We believe that the world is the best place when everyone takes their time to understand each other If you want to be part of a community of people who believe in it Click the big yellow SBSK button to subscribe Thank you, see you later .
