I could feel the pain of the MC in this tender piece. Putting words to paper is a good form of therapy, and as your story indicates, it certainly helped the father of this child.

The unusal voice you give this piece adds to the depth of drama. Powerful and sad.

This is so touching, so sincere, and so sad. Your ending is perfect, adding a touch of hope. Just beautiful writing.
Oh the pain in these words. I can't imagine having to write a letter like that and I pray I will never know that type of pain. You did a beautiful job.
This was gripping and sad and powerful, all wrapped into one. It was beautifully written and left me sitting here after reading it, quietly contemplating its meaning. A wonderfully sensitive piece which must have been difficult to write but you handled it so very well.
Congratulations on your EC!
