Why Sonia's Wisdom? The tragedy of Sonia's accident turned our life expectations upside-down and inside out. In our journey toward acceptance and understanding we came to see the gifts hidden in tragedy. We learned wisdom is not simply granted or found, it requires time and the willingness to travel through complexities, to make sense out of the senseless. Wisdom is the embodiment of the many people who have touched our life and helped in small or big ways to live with the challenges of disability. The writing of Sonia's story, Princess Sophia's Gifts, was part of this journey toward wisdom. The writing helped weave together the pain and hurt of our journey with the love and hope we held for our daughter and our family.
A tale of loss and a tale of finding what makes our spirit dance. This story is a journey through the unknown in search of wisdom, a family story of growth and healing.
