Beautiful character study--great descriptions and dialog! I especially loved the opening scene, where the precocious fourth-grader astonishes his teacher with his spelling ability!

It was interesting to follow his growth and development from a compassionate "bird-fixing" potential doctor into an adult theologian. Great message conveyed through Band_Aid imagery!

Would like to see this story end with some kind of specific, colorful dialog or scene similar to the opening. one.

I really loved the first part of this, and would have liked it to be expanded, so that the whole story is about the aspiring little doctor. Very tenderly written.

I just ADORED your opening - and was moved by the entire story! I would also like something a bit more similar to the opening to finish it, but this was VERY moving.
