Life sometimes presents us with obstacles to overcome which seem unfair, but on the other hand, if there was no darkness on our path, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the light. Sophie Joyce is a 22 year old British mother, whose daughter has Treacher-Collins syndrome.
This disease causes genes to mutate and results in deformations in the bone structure of the skull. In addition to an elongated jaw and deformed cheekbones, the little girl suffers from respiratory deficiency due to her illness.
Sophie’s aim is to show Poppy that she shouldn’t be ashamed of her appearance. She is proud and happy to be her mother, so she posts her photos and tries to instill in her the idea that she’s very beautiful.
The mom says that the girl is too small to understand what’s going on, but she wants to teach her that other peoples’ opinions doesn’t matter and that personality is the most important thing. This family deserves all the happiness in the world and we hope they have it.
