I really like the comment from the friend about the ability of the MC to be a "miracle." That's so true. This story evidences the importance of how we choose to think about things. Good writing!
My heart hurt as I read this. There's so much more to this story that we will never know- like what happened that was so awful in the birth mother's life that she needed to block the pain even though it risked the health of a precious baby. Great story and well- written. It evoked all kinds of feelings in me.

The entire theme through this piece is amazing. The pace is set so well, and the depth of emotion so real. It can't be done better than this!
Great story-you had me hooked from the start. Would love to hear this expanded with more details.
I know people who didn't escape without a lot of side effects from their birth parents' behavior. Praise God that this person is doing well. Perhaps she'll be able to reach out to others who come from similar backgrounds. Well written, too.
Great job! I especially liked the last line.
