“On the day the Judge signed the paperwork giving my daughter full custody I was the one who told my granddaughter when I picked her up from school. She knew we were going to court that day. She started sobbing and flew into my arms. Once she was able to compose herself she looked up at me and said, “Grandma, these are happy tears. No one can ever take me away from you and Aunt Donna again.”

All of this is due to Sophya’s compassion, tenacity and her ability to listen and understand the situation. She never lost sight of the goal throughout the process, which was always to protect the child. Recently, I was able to introduce my granddaughter to Sophya. I told her that Sophya was the lady responsible for her being able to live with us permanently. She said, “Thank you.”

We will forever be grateful to Sophya for her hard work in protecting this little girl and making her life so wonderful.”
