This was a powerful story.. I was so happy for Dawn that she found ya'll and that her formative years were spent with a family that loved her. Great ending with prayer because nothing is more powerful!

GOOD WORK! Made me tear up and smile... all at one time..

Dawn had many spiritual seeds planted in this loving home during her childhood, and God will bring into her life those who will water, weed, and cultivate them!

I loved the way you wove the Scriptures into this poignant piece, and I praise God we can all be "forever hopeful" where our wayward loved ones are concerned!

Excellent writing! :)
What can I say? You portrayed your broken hearts well. Prayerfully one day she will return to the roots you gave her and soar on the wings of salvation.

My heart wanted a guaranteed happy ending but my head knows this is a sad topic, and you wrote this just how it had to be. Amazing.
This very touching story is told exceptionally well. The reader grieves with the aunt and uncle.

As a reader, I was able to connect with your main characters and sympathize with them. A well written entry with a touching message.
