Hi Sonia,
I would be happy to share my thoughts with others about what you mean to Tommy and I and to our twin girls Lindsey and Amanda.

You have had the girls since they were 10 weeks old and they turned four last week. They think so much of you that they call you Mommy "Sonia". This is very special to me and I know it is to you. It is a blessing when I have to work to be able to leave them with you and know they are loved and in a home environment.

There is no comparison between a public daycare and your care. You are very much a part of who they are in their mental and physical development. You are with them more than Tommy and I when during the waking hours of each day. You have taught and shown them love, discipline when needed (in a loving way) and their educational skills are already above board compared to most 4 year olds. I know I can call anytime if I have questions or concerns about the twins and you can do the same with me.

I am so grateful I have been able to know you and I trust you totally with the care and nourishment of Lindsey and Amanda. There is a special place in Heaven for people like you. Thank you for all you do.

Julia Johnson
