This certainly evoked all kinds of emotions in me. Part of me wanted to scream leave him to the mother. I think what really Saddens me is this could be happening hundreds of times over while I was reading this story.

This is almost a scary story. I felt really sorry for the poor lad, but I also really enjoyed reading it. You did a very good job here. Well done.
