Great job with the dialog especially - and a wonderful lesson for all of us. Love your descriptions of the baby especially.
Your descriptions are excellent you, can feel the MC's dilemma. Very good story.
Isn't it amazing how speedily God will answer some prayers, while at other times His silence is almost deafening. Very good message, skillfully written.

Great job! My favorite parts were where you described touching your baby. You have got to be a loving, caring mother to put such feeling into your writing. Makes me want to have another baby. See what you've done!

Boy, I could almost feel the weight of the baby's head on my arm! (Especially since I just cared for a 3 month old a couple of weeks ago.) Great descriptions of the common mommy day, and the way God speaks to moms through the ordinary chores they perform so lovingly. I like the ending and how God confirmed for her what He wanted her to do!
I love it when God leads me into uncharted waters. You described the transition perfectly. Great writing!
This is a wonderful story of God's leading. Your descriptions are excellent.

Awe! Got me! You used my verse! Great story about being confused by the wished on God! Great writing!
I like the tone of this piece. Isn't is true that we want to see something definite to know it's from God? I would like a billboard outside my window. This was a good read. Thanks.

Nice voice here! I liked your MC and especially the tongue in cheek answer to "What are you doing?" Great piece! Loved it. ^_^
As I nurse my 8 month old (TMI?) while I read your story, I can relate to every word! Great job. Bravo.
