“One morning, believe it or not, at three in the morning, I woke up and I said you know, I have an old N guage (small train and train track) in the basement, I’m gonna dig it up,” he said.
Nine months later, Soroka had constructed an elaborate train activity table that his grandson could access from his wheelchair. It was specially-designed to help Jack with his motor skills while having fun.
