Sotomayor and her younger brother, Juan Sotomayor, were raised largely by their mother, Celina Sotomayor, after their father died when Sonia Sotomayor was 9. Their mother worked six days a week to provide for them and sent her children to a nearby Catholic school. "Although I grew up in very modest and challenging circumstances, I consider my life to be immeasurably rich,"Sotomayor said when nominated by Obama. (White House Photo)
