Ah, Bravo! Your device of having Toby talk to his teddy bear instead of the adults is absolute perfection. This is a top-notch piece of writing.
I liked the way you had Toby talk to his teddy and the names he had for his adoptive parents. This was very well done. Keep writing.

Wonderful writing here! Interesting all the way through. Clever ideas and you pulled them off beautifully. I enjoyed this!
You really captured the voice of a six year old. Very enjoyable story. :)

A delightful tale. You portrayed the awkwardness of the situation for both the child and the adult and captured the child's voice convincingly. Well done. Yeggy

I love the dialect. That was hard to pull off, but you did it very well! Nice storyline and good movement!
