She sat on the park bench and glanced at her watch. It was early. They chose this time and place for its seclusion. A million bees seemed to buzz about in her stomach. A young mother was pushing her child on a swing. It reminded her of special moments shared with her own mother. Her eyes misted. She massaged her hand across her tummy. She knew her mother, actually neither of her parents, would share in the birth of their first grandchild. Her father had passed away before she had graduated from college. Then her mother passed away, unexpectedly, a year ago. A tear gently rolled down her cheek. How grateful she was for the Christian heritage they had imparted. At a young age she learned of being adopted. As an only child, her parents always made her feel special and loved. As did her Heavenly Father. She grew up in a happy environment, so never felt the necessity to find her birth mother…until now. Maybe she won’t come, glancing down at her watch. Perhaps she had changed her mind and didn’t want the past to intrude in her life. Yet, many birth mothers had expressed their joy of reuniting with the child they relinquished. But yet…she still hadn’t arrived. She recalled at a young age that her physical features were different than her parents and relatives. Now, being pregnant, she knew the importance of medical history for herself and child. Teary-eyed, she proceeded to walk away…when she heard someone softly speak her name. Turning around, she saw her reflection, as if looking in a mirror, for the first time. They stood inches apart, afraid to move, when in unison, they tenderly embraced.

Oooh, I can see so much more happening in this story! I want more! I want to know what else happens next and all. I loved the ending and the description with 'bees' in her stomach. that was just creative. nice job! ^_^

Very good, but just when it really grabbed me, it ended.

Longer next time, please.

May God bless.
