Very good story....you created good tension holding my attention and it is definitely a truth that this time of year is a tough time for many.
Very clear descriptions of the emotions felt by the MC. IMHO, the author's note was unnecessary and left the reader with "the author's message", rather than letting the story relate the message. :)
Wow - very powerful writing - you bring the reader right into the father's despair. Excellent job!

The emotions of both characters are wonderfully portrayed. I'm left with a sense of awe at the power of prayer.
Wonderful job of making your characters real. The message in their story was powerful all on it's own.

Powerful writing! The other side of christmas for many. How about a sequel?
Hope is indeed the greatest gift we can offer one another. Your story illustrates this beautifully, powerfully. Than-you for writing it!
