Family who fought to adopt daughter visits WSLS 10

By Bethany Teague - Reporter

ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - WSLS 10 received a special visit from a family we have been following for more than a year.

Tom and Whitney Blaszak brought their crew in to see our newsroom and studio, including newly adopted Sophia.

As we chronicled in two special reports, the Blaszaks fought for more than four years to adopt Sophia from Ethiopia.

Now she is in public school, playing basketball and wants to be a worship singer when she grows up.

For now, all four of the kids learned about the inner-workings of a television station and different weather tricks.
