When Sophia Thomas turned eight years old, she thought she’d be spending it watching movies with her friends.
Sophia was heartbroken to have to cancel the celebration; just another stressor for parents, finding the right way to explain to their children the state of the world.
“When you’re eight-years-old, a birthday party is the biggest thing in the world, so to have it taken away was really crushing for her,” her dad Rob told SWNS.
Still, Rob and his wife Alison wanted to give their daughter the best birthday they possibly could under these conditions.
The trio had been cooped up together like everyone else, searching for fun ways to interact and stay social.
