Very well done! You introduced the children that would speak to Celeste's spirit without being schmaltzy or maudlin. I didn't anticipate where you were going until Celeste cancelled her appointment. Excellent!
Wow! What an ending to a perfectly believable story of how God moves mountains to save and change lives.

This is a FABULOUS story! Wow, you did a really great job - I'm so proud of you! (Not that I thought you'd do a bad job - ha ha, just that I'm glad this one's yours.)

Loved that it took a minute for it to become clear why she was there - I love surprises! Great story-telling. Well done!

I SO love stories I don't have to "force" myself to finish! This was a pleasure and a surprize.
This was good. Enjoyed it very much! Blessings, Amy Verlennich

Very touching. I knew where you were headed, and I was so relieved you ended the way you did! Well written.

I just tried to comment, but lost it I think ... anyhow, the gist of it was - WELL DONE! And I was much relieved at the ending. I guessed where you were headed from the parents showing off their baby on. I love the title too.
I'm obviously slow. It wasn't until this line: "But mostly she wept because of the appointment she had come to the city for, because of what she had almost done" that I realised where you were taking this. You handled a difficult topic with great sensitivity and without becoming preachy. Well done. Definitely one of my favourites!

A story filled with hope! Not only is the baby saved, but those kind eyes of Jesus are leading your character to salvation. Excellent!
