NOTE FROM SONJA:
We were so grateful to have the chance to speak with our beautiful girl on Mother's Day.
I am so humbled to be able to be a mom. It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
During our visit, Hermana Sheffer shared that Exxxxo was baptized the day before. She said it was small quiet occasion that was beautiful and special. She really identifies with Exxxxo and considers him a friend - especially as he is quiet and shy and she can relate to that. She sent some pictures in her email the next day and those are below.
I don't think she will mind me sharing that at the end of the call, we asked her to either say a family prayer or call on someone to say it. She said she would say it. Friends, it was just like a peace of heaven to hear my sweet daughter thank the Lord for the chance to be a missionary and to call down the blessings of heaven on each of us. She expressed what was in our hearts... our thanks for family and each other and most of all our Savior Jesus Christ. It was the most tender experience. I love being a missionary mom and the blessings it has given to our family.
