My dear Sonia,
On this third anniversary of your passing away I am this website filled with pain, loss, love and hope. Hope for all those girls whose lives you have changed forever. Your dream is coming true and you mission is progressing. On my recent trip to the school, I saw the heartwarming transformation in those young lives. Some of the children came to school without shoes but were happy to learn. I saw 15 years old girls proudly sitting in the first grade hungry to learn, writing their names for the first time, full of hope and laughter.
I saw your picture hanging in the principal’s office and realized that I will never see you, talk with you or touch you in this life but I will always be connected to you via these girls. Every girl in the world that you touch is Sonia, who will change their families and their communities. What a gift to the world!
You have changed my life for better too. I have a purpose and meaning in my life. I am stronger, wiser and resigned to a higher power. I feel I am following your lead and picking the bread crumbs. In your life we lived and traveled the world from Thailand to Switzerland, touched all the beautiful landmarks. In your death you are leading me on a spiritual journey from Mecca to Medjugorje to Jerusalem. You were a gift to me in your life and a gift in your death!
We continue to love you and inspired by you!
