I'm in awe, first at the creative mind behind the antics, then at the depth of response from "strangers", and finally at the skill put into the story-telling! If this is a true story, lovely tribute also for your daughter.
Awesome! absolutely loved it!

Loved your story and couldn't agree more with your final comment.
I had to read through this a couple times, then again to my husband. I remember well his reaction to the birth of our first child (a girl). This brought tears to our eyes--the joy, the reactions of strangers, the celebration! LOVE this piece!
