I really enjoyed this story! I could relate to it personally, as my older daughter was also accessed with delays as a preschooler and started out in a "special needs" preschool. (She also blossomed there and grew up in later years to become an honor student!)

Great character sketch. I could see and hear the loving, dedicated teacher with her original approach and encouraging words. Was "Candi Twist" the teacher's real name? It suits her, at any rate!

The unusual title of this story grabbed me as well.
This is such a sweet story! Hailey was a perfect character and you brought some very serious emotions into the story without taking away from it! I love the teacher-the name says it all ;) This was fun and very encouraging to read!

Excellent title and a great way to end the story. You told this story very well, and though I thought it was a bit light on topic, I truly enjoyed it and you did a great job.

I enjoyed this article very much. Thanks for sharing. I think I see Mrs. Twist as a wonderful teacher who could see all the hidden potential stuffed into Hailey.

Thank you! This was so inspiring. I deal with a daughter that has a learning disability, and I could relate to this story on many levels, bouncing back and forth between despair and hope. What a wonderful story.
What a heartwarming story. I know this is a late read, but I am playing "catch up" as I have not been with FaithWriters long. I loved this. Very good writing here.
