Hello Kickstarter Backers! I posted a video on Facebook a few days ago and I'd like to share my video here for our backers on Kickstarter website! 

From the FB post: I finally can share the good news and update of The Light of Deaf Women book project. Enjoy the video with pictures of our travels! Stay tuned for next post/email with the survey form for you to fill out for the shipping. Namaste!

Lots of love, Sofia & GDW Team 

Transcript for the hearing fans/backers:

Hello, I am here to share the update of the book in making, The Light of Deaf Women. First, I would like to say, thank you all for your support, patience, understanding and believing in our project to inspire the world with our inner Light and success.

Speaking of the challenges, Team and I really worked hard on this book project; photoshoot sessions, editing the stories, going back and forth with our wonderful women who is in our book. We finished it! That part took longer than we expected! What took us longer? We faced unforeseen challenges while traveling, I learned a lot about myself through the process as a mother, wife, entrepreneur, travel planner, researcher, supporter, teacher (homeschooling my sons), juggling between roles and traveling the world, it is like a full-time job. I realized I had to take a break from work and focus on myself getting recuperated. 

Now, I am here to communicate with you all, what is the update of the book. We finally finished it! We sent a draft of pages and layout to the publishing company and they will send us a sample book within 5-7 business days to test and make sure everything looks good. Then, they will officially print 1,000 books. It takes about 3-4 weeks to produce/print hardcover books, meaning, you shall receive the book in the time before holidays. I am so excited and can't wait for you to receive the book in your hand and spread the light with the world. Thank you for your continuous support, and patience!

Stay tuned for the survey and next announcement! May Light be with you all.

      Thank you for the update! I am envious of your travels. I wanted to let you know that I homeschooled my four boys from day one. They are now in their 20's. It was a wonderful experience and we took a 3 month road trip around the USA in 2004 with them. Feel free to contact me privately if you want to discuss homeschooling.
