Her personal essay, “My Son, My Son” appears in issue number 64 of the magazine along with other thematic material representing “Perspectives on Loss.” Her work was selected from among more than 350 submissions considered for publication. Sadowsky, a grandmother of five, works as an English tutor. Her work has appeared in U.S. Health and Human Resources, Israel Psychiatric Journal, and Horizons. Her book, Weep for Them, written in Hebrew, was published in Israel. She is currently working on an English version of the same book titled, Not Here to Hold.

She has also volunteered for the Israel Mental Health Association

    We’re looking forward to reading “David’s Story” in English on Kindle. I’m sure there are many people out there waiting to read your amazing, touching book. Not only does it take a great writer to put into words what you have been through, but it also requires courage and strength of character to write openly and honestly for the world to see. It is a privilege and honour to know you.
