We all knew the ending of the story,
long before the final chapter even began,
yet we continued to read it,
page by page,
that somewhere in the final paragraphs,
the Author of Life,
would include a miracle…
but He didn’t,
and though we grieve,
we all know,
that in time,
we will once again pick up the book,
and begin reading another story.
Losing someone like Sochea is hard on everyone here at Wat Opot, for he appeared, at least for a time, to be doing quite well. He was no different than any of the other HIV children but somehow he picked up something that they didn’t and that is how it started.
