Wow ... what a hero. What a heart. Excellent job.
Nicely told story - full of layers of emotion.

Liked the imagery in this line: "He still remembers the dreams she had then, the dreams they had for her as parents, even if she has long since painted over the memories with alcohol and ashes."

And this one says it all: "It’s hard to forgive a mother who discards her children like gum wrappers."

What a great first line! Talk about an attention getter! LOL Touching story. Good work.

I love how you make the reader feel compassion for this prostitute mother. That's how Jesus would feel. Extremely well written!
