Very well written! After reading many entries, this is the first one that actually brought tears to my eyes, since the topic is "sad"... I'm amazed. Bringing emotion to the reader is a sign of a great writer; Thanks & Kudos!

What I liked most was the touch of the rag doll, introduced early and with a role to play later in the story. That's the touch of a gifted writer.

I spot a winner in this entry. Masterful story--the rag doll was a great throughout the story. I want to read something longer of this--I want to know what's in store now for Mary Elizabeth ^_^

Great job! I really enjoyed this one. A lot of sadness involved, but I love that she found some purpose for herself after all. :)
Very touching and well written story. Great work!
Very nice. It was sad, and it nejoyed the read. My only note is you used the name "Mary Elizabeth" so many times I just got tired of it-lol. Try using a few more "She" "Her" etc, to bring the reader closer to the story. Nice job. ^_^
