You took us through a range of emotions here, and showed that Love never fails. A beautiful story.
This was a beautiful story! There was only one thing I noticed, looks like there was a word missing in the mom's letter. 'Was' should be in there when she's talking about the devil's charade.

By the way, great title! I liked this story.

Great title, and sweet story.

I don't think you need the definition at the end: people generally know what "charade" means, and it's a bit anticlimactic after the ending of your story.

I had two daughters in this same situation, so I related to the mom in your story!
Nice story which many can relate to. Thanks for sharing. :)
I like your story and your title draws us in. Keep it up.

I chose to read this because of the title. I like how the story unfolded but was disappointed to find Star thinking God was punishing her since I've always felt working with special needs kids was a sort of calling. Still you resolved it in a beautiful way.

There is nothing like that special quilt to help face new challenges! Good job.

You seemed to capture the mood of the situation very well. I could feel the burden of the college student away from home. I was also attracted by the title. There were a couple run-on sentences but as a whole it was well written.
