About Sophie
First information  |  October 31, 2005  |  December 1, 2005

Sophie was found on January 26, 2004, at six days old. She was sent to Guilin SWI and was named Jing Xiao in hopes that her future would be as beautiful as the music played on the xiao, a Chinese reed flute. At five months she loved her caretaker to hold her and sing songs to her. In return she would stroke her caretaker's face. At seven months she could sit alone and began crawling. One month later she could crawl well and if her caretaker said "Sweet, come here" she would crawl quickly to her. At ten months she could stand holding on and began stepping. A few days after she turned one she was able to walk. She is now a one year two month baby. She is so happy to see her caretaker coming for work that she cries "Mom, mom" reaching out her hands. Now, JingXiao is able to do some postures if asked, such as waving goodbye, and blowing kisses. If someone asks "How old are you?" she will sometimes hold up one finger as her answer.

"Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world." - James 1:27
