We’ve been blessed by having Diego in our lives, but we’ve also been equally blessed by having his sister Sofia. She is an 8 years old girl with a wonderful heart, the most amazing imagination and creativity, and with a pure love for her brother. For us it is very important that she understands her brother’s condition and that our everyday life is different. In this regard she is incredibly mature, and even help us in our everyday activities with him. We are fortunate that they like to play and laugh together as Sofia verbally expresses and as Diego spelled for her in the following messages:
Easy afternoon laughing with you. Xtra nice, silly, easy day. Easy to be myself with you. Really luv u. You’re so fun. I am laughing and really wish I could make Autism go away to speak to you. Really, Miss Gal (Adriana) really helps me have my so many messages so I can speak to you. I have so much to say. I once have fear of being incapable of communication.
