However, she responded to Maria Laura in Italian; (Virginia is trilingual having lived in Italy and France). Intrigued, Maria Laura asked if they could be friends, and they began to correspond almost daily. After several months of corresponding, Maria Laura came to the US to visit Virginia in her home in South Westerlo, NY. There have been five more visits.

Now Maria Laura has a grandchild, a little boy named Michele. Virginia decided she would make a book for the little boy. That book, Out My Window, Fuori Dalla Mia Finestra was such a success, Virginia has decided to write more.
