Ahhhh...so sweet! I love the bond between the little girl with the woman. There are so many children that need someone to listen, someone to pray.

This was really good. I loved the interaction between the two of them.
I loved your story, showing the contrast between age and youth, yet showing the similarities of loving their papas, as well as the warm feeling between them. The story flowed smoothly and the ending with a prayer was perfect.
