Because of your writing, I had the whole hospital scene pictured perfectly in my head and heart. Normally I am not a fan of tatoos, but in this case I applaud them. This was a stirring and emotional read.
This is such a beautifully tender story. It was a good reminder of the "service" presented by caring nurses.

Very sensitive treatment of personal and professional trauma, within an event that most of us only know as statistical information. Well done.

This was written with a sweet and tender grace...
Wow. This piece evoked a lot of emotion within me. I felt like I was there, witnessing the sadness of this baby's death, and yet you provided hope at the end (which I'm glad for). I think I may know who wrote this one. Great job with bringing the reader into the story.
This piece made me cry. I love the ending, so fitting and beautiful for the tenderness at the beginning.

Very well-written account of something that occurs and breaks hearts.
I get the tattoo scene and how it adds to the story, but it bothers me a bit on a personal level.
I loved the nurse character and how she documents and journals. What an inspiration.

Very good format for this heart-wrenching story. Excellent writing. And the tiny baby feet tattoos was great.
Wow. Heartbreaking and hope filled. Wonderful writing. Perfect title and a "cool" way to end. Nicely done.
Heart-wrenching and so well written. I have 2 nephews in heaven who had to be induced... this really touched me.
Wow- this kept me riveted to the page...couldn't wait to see what happened next!
