This story broke my heart! I'm always so thankful to hear about people who have made life-shattering mistakes turning it around and using it for good instead of swimming in their guilt forever. I'm glad that was the conclusion, but it is a tragic story nonetheless.

I wondered if someone would write about the gift of giving. I tried and tried to, but couldn't find the right approach--but you did! Heartbreaking and really well-written.

Wow - What a gift, and one that didn't come to mind when I first thought about this challenge. Yet it's so on topic, and the story kept my attention the whole way through. Sadly sometimes it's tragic circumstances like this that bring people to a full sense of responsibility.

Very good story that I could relate to very well. It's so hard to know how to help family. Thank you for sharing!
