A very good story and well written; however how it filled the assignment kind of is escaping me?

A touching story indeed.
I could feel the pain of Megan. Losing her mother at such a young age wreaks havoc on a childs development. If not handled properly problems arise just like Megans. They are major ows in life. Thanks for sharing.

Great ending! There are hurting people in this world, and it's our job to introduce them to the greatest Father there is and embrace them as family. I hope Megan was able to get some help. :)

My heart breaks for children like Megan.

There were some awkward sentence constructions, but they didn't greatly interfere with the mood of this story, and our sense of the narrator's compassion.

I've started a class in the FaithWriters forums for Beginner and Intermediate writers. I'd love to see you there--look for "Jan's Writing Basics".

I caught the tie-in to the topic in a few places--Megan's obvious hurt, and the pain of the narrator when the picture hit her face. Well done.
