It just made me feel so hopeless. Like I was never going to be normal.

Sophia Quinn is the daughter of Robert and Jill Quinn and the paternal younger half-sister of Callie Adams Foster. She first appeared in Things Unknown.

After getting to know Callie, Sophia immediately grew attached to her and expressed how she wished her family could adopt her. In later episodes, once her true suicidal feelings are brought to light, Sophia is diagnosed with a personality disorder. She is subsequently entered into professional help and begins making positive progress.

Sophia is portrayed by Bailee Madison.

Physical Appearance

Sophia has fair skin, wavy brown hair, and brown eyes. She bears a striking resemblance to her half-sister, Callie. Sophia's fashion style is very high-maintenance and girly, consisting of skirts, blouses, dresses, and tights. She wears a lot of bright-colored clothing, such as pinks, yellows, purples, and blues.

Personality

Sophia appears to be an open-minded, opinionated, outgoing, cheerful and bubbly young girl. She was excited to get to know Jude and especially Callie, delighted at the prospect of having a sister.

However, Sophia has demonstrated suicidal tendencies along with desperately craving Callie's approval shortly after learning of her existence and personally meeting her. This is displayed in Over Under when she responded to Callie's refusal to forgive her for sabotaging her adoption process by the Fosters by walking straight into traffic - almost getting hit by a car and causing it to crash into another to avoid hitting her. In Someone's Little Sister, she appeared to attempt to drown herself when Callie called her "a spoiled brat".

Callie soon admits to Sophia's parents that the car crash she caused was not an accident, to which Sophia admits her suicidal thoughts, much to her parents devastation. In Light of Day, she is mentioned to be in a mental health facility and is believed by the doctors to have a personality disorder. Sophia soon returns home in the Season 2 finale, where she admits to feeling good again, but has insecurities regarding her mental disorder.
