I don't want to provide too much verbiage for this post. But, just so you know, Sophie was born on March 8th, 1995. She was a normal infant. In early June of that year, The Troubles began.

Helen Keller has always had special significance for me for obvious reasons, and the world is filled with brilliant quotes of hers. A while back I posted this photo of Keller because of its uncanny resemblance to my Sophie.
You can see a nearly identical profile pic of Sophie HERE.
Now I'm going to go and pick my jaw up from the floor.
