5-years old girl wants to marry her best friend before her 4th heart open surgery

At first glance, 5-year-old Sophia is the same as every other kid, a bright, bubbly girl with a huge smile on her face. But not everyone knows that this little girl is a true warrior.

Sophia Chiappalone from Connecticut, USA was born with a genetic heart defect and wasn’t expected to live past 2 years old. But Sophia defied all odds.

Sophia Chiappalone has been in and out of hospital for most of her short life.

She was born with half of a heart, the whole right side of her heart was missing and wasn’t expected to live past the age of two.

Before going for her 4th open heart surgery, Sophia had a special wish, she wanted to have a dream wedding and “marry” her best friend, Hunter, a boy she met at 3.

“She’s a walking miracle”
“There is no life expectancy at this time because there’s no reason for her to be alive”

Kirsty got in touch with photographer, Marisa Balletti-Lavoie, who was only too happy to help fulfill the little girl’s dreams.

“I teared up watching her get all dressed up,” said Kristy, the mother.

“I was terrified…that this may be the only time I see my baby in a wedding dress”

“It was pure innocence in the purest form. My heart aches with joy with the people standing behind Supergirl on this fight”

“She’s fought to be alive since her first breath, but that’s all she knows”

“Most people wait a lifetime for someone who wouldn’t stand by them through such illness”

“She met a best friend and love of her life at 3″, the mother narrated.
