Sophia Weaver Biography

Sophia Weaver A disabled girl from North Carolina who was viciously attacked by online trolls over her appearance has died aged 10.

Sophia Weaver died of complications related to the brain disorder Rett syndrome on Thursday, with her death announced by her mother Natalie.

The little girl was at the center of a social media storm in January when an individual used her image on Twitter in a poster promoting abortion.

In a Tweet on Friday, Natalie said: ‘Our #SweetSophia left this earth last night as she spent every day of her life, surrounded by love & adoration. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to sophias-voice.com.

‘Once we pull ourselves from this shattering pain we will continue to help others in her memory.’

Despite being hugely dependent on her family because of her disabilities, Sophia was the “strongest human being I know,” Natalie said of her daughter in a YouTube video in January.

The Cornelius, North Carolina, mom was aghast at peoples’ reactions to her daughter’s appearance.


“I couldn’t believe the amount of hate and ignorance that was out there,” says Natalie. “I would have to muster up so much strength just to go to the grocery store only to be brought back down again because someone else did something mean or stared and whispered or completely avoided us.”

In 2017, a photo of Sophia was used in a Twitter post to encourage abortions for disabled children. Natalie was horrified.

“There are people who go out of their way to make sure you see their cruelty,” Natalie told CNN. “I get people telling me to kill my child, to put her out of her misery.”


Today, she identifies as an advocate for children like Sophia and runs an organization called Sophia’s Voice in her honor.

“When you see true beauty and you realize there’s value in every single human being no matter what their ability, it can change the world.”
