I clicked on this first because my daughter's name is Lydia and I wasn't disappointed at all. This is a sweet story of love and survival and a place many of us can't imagine but so does exist.

Just a tiny bit of red ink. AIDS is usually all capitals. The ending seemed a bit abrupt for me. If it had been a longer story and we could have seen the two interact more it wouldn't have seemed so sudden to me.

But even with my red ink, I still so enjoyed this story. You captured weary so well. Taking care of one little one is enough to tucker someone out but this situation that Lydia is in would be both physically and emotionally draining. You did a beautiful job.

This story touched my heart. It was so well written. It had an intensity to it, and held my attention all the way through.

I loved the happy ending. What a wonderful MC. All of the people who take care of children in these situations are truly instruments of the Lord.

Thank you for this.

God Bless~
