spring daythe kind of day to be outside But Sonia Sotomayor was in her office, sitting beside her phone She was waiting for the most important call of her life A call from the White House She would learn whether President Barack Obama wanted her to be a judge on the Supreme Court Sonia was already a judge Her courtroom was in downtown New York City But being one of the nine judges on the Supreme Court would be very different The Supreme Court is the most important court in the countryit decides whether laws in the United States are fair or not Its decisions are final All day the phone in her office rang again and again Each time Sonia picked it up, it was her family calling They wanted to know what was happening If she got the job, she would be only the third woman to sit on the Supreme Courtand the very first Hispanic person Her family would be invited to go to the White House with her the next day Some family members were coming from Puerto Rico Finally, at seven oclock that evening, Sonia couldnt stand waiting any longer She picked up the phone and called the White House herself She spoke to an aide to the president What should she do If she was picked, she had to get to Washington by the next morning The aide told Sonia to go home and packand wait for a call Then, a little after 8 00 p.m., the call came, the one she so hoped for It was the president He told her he would name her to be the next associate justice on the Supreme Court Sonia choked up and started to cry Thank you, Mr President, she said Then he asked her to promise two things He wanted her to stay the same person that she wasand to always stay connected to the world she had come from For Sonia Sotomayora girl who had grown up poor and proud of her Puerto Rican heritagethat was a promise she was very happy to make Chapter 1 Born in the Bronx Sonia Maria Sotomayor was born on June 25, 1954 Her parents, Juan and Celina, brought her home They lived in a poor area of the Bronx, which is part of New York City Like many of their neighbors, Juan and Celina had come to the United States from Puerto Rico They had each left Puerto Rico in 1944, hoping for a better life In the Bronx, they met and married They moved into the building where Juans mother lived The Sotomayors worked hard to make a life in their new country Celina worked at a hospital while she studied to become a nurse Juan worked in a factory Celina learned some English, but the family spoke only Spanish at home When Sonia was three years old, her brother, Juan, was born The family called him Junior With the family growing, her parents decided to move to a bigger, nicer apartment in the Bronx Sonia liked her new home but missed living near her grandmother Mercedes Years later, Sonia wrote a book about her life She called it My Beloved World, and it was published in 2013 In the book, she wrote about her grandmotherhow full of life she was She gave parties for the family almost every Saturday night Everyone danced, played dominoes, and sang Mercedes read poetry about Puerto Rico and cooked large meals The apartment would fill with the smell of Puerto Rican food like chicken cooked with onions and garlic Even as a child, Sonia liked pigs feet and pigs ears When Sonia was very young, Mercedes began taking her to Puerto Rico for vacations Sonia loved those trips She never forgot the clear blue water of the ocean and the white sandy beaches of Puerto Rico Sonias father was a sweet man He took Sonia on picnics, to the beach, and to Yankees games But he drank too much Her parents fought a lot because of this When Sonias father lost his job, Celina worked nights and weekends to support the family She also worked to pay for Sonia and Junior to go to a Catholic school Celina thought education was the most important thing in the world But Sonia didnt like her school It was called Blessed Sacrament The nuns were very strict They slapped kids who didnt behave Sonia had other troubles as well When she was almost eight years old, she fainted in church And this was not the first sign of a problem Sonia often had no energy She was thirsty all the time She was losing weight Celina took Sonia to the doctor right away The doctor sent Sonia to Prospect Hospital in the Bronx for some tests Celina worked at Prospect Hospital, so Sonia wasnt afraid at first But when the tests were done, the doctor had bad news Sonia had type I diabetes Sonia had never seen her mother cry until that moment Sonia was scared She had to stay in the hospital for a week When she got home from the hospital, Sonia felt better But there was another problem As Sonia explained in her book, her parents were nervous about giving her insulin shots Celina was a nurse, but she hated the idea of hurting Sonia Her parents started fighting about it Sonia was always a girl who wanted to solve problems herself So she climbed up on a chair near the stove to boil water for sterilizing the needle Sterilizing means getting rid of germs At first her mother was worried Should she really let a young girl use the stove and handle a needle Nearly all parents would say absolutely not But Celina decided to trust her child From that day on, Sonia gave herself shots of insulin every day Now that her disease was under control, she had energy But the very next year, her world changed again Her father died suddenly of a heart attack He was only forty two years old Sonia and Junior were very sad, but their mother seemed overcome by grief Years later, Sonia wrote that her mother wouldnt come out of her room at night How was
