Beautifully written and an encouraging message, for adoptive parents as well as adopted children. The compassion & wisdom Abigail showed brought tears to my eyes.
Astounding words of wisdom in this story. A great deal of comfort as well to all involved with adoption, no matter which side of the arrangement they may find themselves on. Good job.
Well written. There are those of us adoptive parents that can relate to your story.
My birth mother gave me up for adoption at the hospital, and I have never had any contact with her. Reading this story was a powerful reminder of the love it takes to let go, sometimes. Great message.
I linked over after you'd read my current piece and I'm SO VERY GLAD I did. What a truly moving story! You painted an emotional piece that ended with such a sense of love. We often do what people tell us instead of following our hearts only to find out that we've made a mistake that can't be changed. I like it when characters give a gentle reminder. Wonderful story.
