This has got to be one of my favorites so far. You could really feel for the MC, and the mystery you unraveled at the end was precious. Wonderful message.

What a tender and compassionate story. I am glad her mother shared what had become of her daughter's daughter.

wow this is a beautiful piece of writing and the grace/disgrace aspect really gives a rhythmn to the piece.
this one is a winner for me too. I hope the judges agree. it is a precious gem of a piece and one of the best i have ever read on the unplanned pregnancy/adoption theme
I'm glad time has changed somewhat in those years, although there are still babies labeled as a disgrace today. Nicely written you had a few typos and I wasn't sure it was the grandmother or daughter asking to see the baby until I read on- Altogether a great story with a important message.

A great job of expressing the heart of the MC. (and, the heart of the mother) I would like to have heard that after the mother's {grandmother's, } death, that Grace and her own mother actually got to meet one another. I'm a hopeless sentimentalist. :}
