You've captured this little boy wonderfully in this heart-warming tale. It makes the "grandma" in me want to hug him too. Your ending and metaphor, "unfurled", are very good!
You did a wonderful job capturing Caleb's fear at allowing himself to hope, to love. What a tender, heartwarming story. I'm glad she was able to break through. I'm thrilled his first words were of love. Great job!
Okay, let me get my kleenex...
breathe in, and out. Better. Now, this was great.
You portrayed beautifully how love and trust break through a broken heart.
Awesome job!!
This is so sweet. You made me care about Caleb. Well done.
Aww Laury, that was beautiful. I wanted to wrap my arms around Caleb.
Aww Laury, why do you have to get me all teary-eyed before work this morning? :) Very sweet story. My heart really went out to little Caleb, and Miss Patty is a very sweet woman. Good characterizations in this one.
Hey wow, fantastic girl! So happy for you. I definitely thought you deserved this one!
