Her foster family had tried to adopt her, this added up to a death sentence for the sweet 4yr old.

Sirita's Law was signed by Gov. Gregoire May 11, 2007.  Thank you to everyone that helped make this happen.  This has been a very long road.  I am so grateful for everyone that walked it with me.

Sirita Jimmina Sotelo
Feb. 12, 2000 - Jan. 21, 2005

This web site is dedicated to my foster daughter, Sirita Sotelo, who was murdered Friday, January 21, 2005.  We were blessed to have Sirita with us Feb. - Nov. 2003, after which we transitioned her to live with her biological father and step mother.  She had lived with them a little over a year.  She would have been 5 in three weeks.  We are of course devastated.

She was a sweet little girl.  She loved music and she loved to dance.  She knew she could always delay bedtime another 5 minutes by asking to see Mars; she could point it out in the southern sky.  I was so proud, because I had taught her that.  She liked clanking our glasses together and drinking root beer floats.  I called her “Boo-Boo.”  She liked it, and sometimes called me “Boo-Boo.”  I said no, you are Boo-Boo, Mommy is Moo-Moo, and I am Ugu-Moo-Goo.  She liked sitting on my shoulders waving the flag while I danced around the house humming “Stars and Stripes Forever.”  She had a beautiful voice and picked up songs very quickly, often after only hearing me sing them once.  She was a real fashion princess – she liked getting dressed up in outfits with her hair done up with hair pretties.  She was smart, she was pretty, she was wonderful and we were lucky to have her in our lives.  If I didn’t believe in God right now and didn’t believe she was in heaven I think I would go crazy.

As you can imagine, I have gone through the gamut of emotions.  The one that sticks out most is ultimately a little selfish.  It’s how much I miss her.

This is inexcusable!! This sweet girl had found loving parents Finally!!

WHY did the birth father finally decide he wanted her? She would still be alive if not for his ridiculous decision.

And the bio mom?? While I find it sad and tragic that she is a drug addict, she did not raise Sirita. This bitch that killed Sirita should be getting life in prison. Yet, she will be free and clear and walking the streets before bio mom is out. This makes me livid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How absolutely tragic and heartbreaking. The birth parents are not always the best choice. How preventable this was.
I am so sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful little girl. May warm memories of her comfort you and your family. Welcome to VH.

A playground was created and dedicated to her memory. I'd hope that any one in the area may visit.

Lindamarie, yes I did make this video. Two years ago I stumbled onto her story on accident. I then learned that virtually no one had ever heard her story before. It became some what of a personal mission to share her story to the whole world. I made video after video, then found more untold stories and was inspired to make videos for them too. Before Sirita, I did not know how to make a video, now I make about one every week. She really did change my life. When my dream of becoming a nurse died, I knew exactly what I wanted to replace it, the dream of becoming a cps worker and saving these kids.
