What a sweet story! I love the heart of the aunt and uncle, and of course the Christmas miracle.
I definitely wanted more of this story!
Well done.
I also wanted more!
Being a foster parent myself, this really touched my heart.

This is very sweet!

I wasn't clear on some of the details--if Maggie and Elmer were the childrens' aunt and uncle, why weren't the children aware where they were going? Why were they getting details of the childrens' lives from a case worker?

Love the way the church family rallied at the end.

Well, I knew I would like this right away since my dad's name was Elmer and you have a Betty in your story.

This is very sweet, and I love that you had church people behaving as church people should. It's easy to look the other way sometimes.

Nicely done.

Oh, your story warmed my heart. If this was a movie, I'd watch it over and over! :) LOVE IT!
