Kristina looked down at the tiny baby boy who weighed all of two pounds. She had tears of love streaming down her face as she peered at her newborn son who, just an hour earlier, had been born ten weeks prematurely. You would think those tears would be tears of worry for her struggling son as the first sight of him was through an incubator with wires and IVís attached to what seemed to be every inch of his tiny frame.

Somehow, worry was not in her. There was just something that was giving her strength to continue on and to have a hope that all would be okay; that the preparation for the death of her son, that her family and her husbandís family was saying just was not in the realm of possibility, that her baby, whom they named Milagro, meaning miracle because he was their miracle baby, Kristina just knew deep within her heart, that she was going to see Milagro grow into manhood, fatherhood, be something special to this world.

Kristina had that confidence, a confidence that her family saw as denial. As time went on, Milagro faced one hurdle after another and seemingly glided over them with ease. Kristina began to wonder herself as to why things were going so well. Why, when her faithful, Christian In-laws had no confidence in the God they believed in to bring Milagro through this, why did unbelieving Kristina have that faith?

God looked down on Kristina with love. Although Kristina didnít know it then, the worry-free confidence that she felt was the love and peace of God upon her. A peace and love so strong that Kristina could look beyond the death preparations of their families, to move forward and come to know the God that gave her peace and love and knowledge of a Saviour that would mean the difference between life and death for herself.

This is a special story. The long sentence of paragraph two was a little hard to get through, but overall I enjoyed this.

Great job! It is an interesting concept that she who doesn't know the Lord would have faith while the believers did not. I would have like to have her conversion a little more nailed down and it needs to be tighter but it is a great take on the topic.

A tender and moving story. Watch out for run-on sentences and sentence fragments, and keep on writing! This was lovely.

A good story of how God can reach anyone, believers or not. Well done.

You expressed your character's emotions well. I agree about the long sentences. But overall a great job.
