This story is smartly simplistic, yet evokes a deeper meaning. For instance, just as a flower blossoms as it's filled with love, so can the family with its new addition. And it's interesting that they draw rather than pick the flower which, to me, symbolizes that they must do the work of becoming a family, rather than take a shortcut. Also drawing different flowers is symbolic because it shows that though we may be different from one another, we should still be accepted and loved. Good job.

Good story. Mary is afraid to do anything "wrong." Aren't most foster children delivered to a home by an adult? i'm glad Mary sees it's okay to be herself. Well written. Good job.
A beautiful little story written with lots of love filled in, exaclty where it should be. So very sweet!!
