This is my precious daughter, Raquel Angelica Rios. She loves to wear her sunglasses and you will always find her with her purse on her shoulder. We call her our very own Sophia Petrillo (from the Golden Girls). Raquel is one special and unique woman! She's 30 years old now...but one would never know when looking at her!
Raquel attends a special day program and enjoys her days there immensely! She doesn't care much for weekends....she wants to be with her friends and out in the community.
One thing you need to know about Raquel...when she was first accessed by a physician for her disability, I was told that she would never walk nor would she talk. WOW!! Way wrong! This woman does both and to the extreme!! She's one very smart cookie too!
