Who is Sonya?

Sonya is one of those babies that people refer to as a "beautiful baby".  Not just as a conversational filler, or to make me, the mom of the new baby feel better, but because she is legitimately a beautiful baby.  She has been special from the start.  Wanted very much by her parents to add to their already crazy house of three active, silly siblings ranging from almost 2 to 5 years old.  Sonya came quickly into this world, a little less than 2 weeks prior to her due date and was ready to take her place, letting us know she would not just be an ordinary 4th child, but that she has a story to tell.  This is where Sonya's Story begins...but the rest is still unwritten  


  1. I look forward to following her (and your family's) journey as her story unfolds. Thank you for sharing her with the world. <3

  2. This is so heartbreaking! We have a son who was diagnosed in his teens with an "incurable" degenerative neurological disorder, similar to what your little Sonya has. It was devastating to see professor after professor throw up their hands while handing down the same death sentence! I wouldn't accept their verdict and decided to find the answer on my own. It took me six months of 24/7 research but Baruch Hashem - I found my answer: My boy has a type of inborn error of metabolism which affects the way the body synthesizes vitamin B12. Seems so simple, doesn't it? Believe me, despite the evidence I brought which cast serious doubts on their diagnosis, not a single doctor was willing to discuss a differential! Med schools churn out MDs who've been trained to absorb enormous amounts of medical "facts" and information - often at the expense of their own seichel (and simple COMMON SENSE!) The same is true of the medical establishment's biased view of anything that smacks of "alternative medicine" - even if hundreds of thousands of patients have been successfully treated with a certain remedy for decades - if there's no "clinical trail" to substantiate it, it must be bogus.
    Please go to and read how low dose naltrexone has been used by "alternative" and mainstream doctors for over 20 years as a safe, effective CURE for a long list of otherwise "incurable" autoimmune and degenerative diseases like Parkinson's, fibromyalgia, autism AND Sonya's childhood epilepsy! רפואה שלימה
