“Every night since our son was born we have read a story at bed time. A new book in our house is something that causes great excitement and is something we all look forward to.
Today a new book came home in my son’s backpack as part of the “Miss Soto’s Literacy Legacy” and so very appropriately, is a book about a flamingo. It is with so much mixed emotion that I read this book tonight. It breaks my heart to know the truth in why this book is coming home, the truth in why the “Miss Soto’s Literacy Legacy” even exists. But at the same time, it warms my heart to know that her memory will live on and that her life albeit short, had purpose and will have profound meaning for her family and my town far beyond my life.
My family will always be #teamvickisoto and we will always strive to Live. Laugh. Love.”
