Very nice story! It kept my interest from beginning to oend. blessings...
Having a child inside you for 9 months then placing him for adoption had to be a painful experience. Your letters show the grief a mother might experience.

A story like this could be a movie on the Hallmark channel!

I was put off by one phrase at the very end: the 'grim smile'. I'm not sure that 'grim' really fits the emotions of that reunion.

I love stories where family members are reconciled--this was very moving.
Congratulations on your highly commended!
