9-Year-Old Writes Letters To Kids Who Have Lost Loved Ones
Sophia Feller is a very special 9-year-old. Once she gets home from school she doesn't play or have a snack, but does something much more meaningful. She spends her time writing letters to children who have lost loves ones. Unfortunately, this is something she knows first hand.
Three years ago, her father was killed while at work. To remember him, she started writing down memories. Now, she also shares her thoughts with others.
"It helps me think about my dad and help others at the same time," Feller said.
Those efforts have grown to include a website and s non-profit group called "Heaven Sent It," where people can read Sophia's story and in return Sophia can try to help them with their loss.
Now she's making care packages filled with things that brought Sophia comfort: a journal to write down memories, a necklace, a memory box for pictures and a picture frame.
"I want them to be able to smile and not be sad for a long time like I was," Feller said.
