very touching - I almost wrote a true story of that happening to a friend of mine. Her teacher knew it was her birthday and gave me instructions on what to buy to make it special - her mother had forgotten it was her birthday - I still cannot believe a mother would forget!
Thank God for friends! This sounds biographical. How sad. And again, thank God for friends!
A story of comfort and hope and getting our priorities right! (Second sentence is a bit long and cumbersome)
What a sad but touching piece. You captured both Darcy's heartache and joy. You've written it well.
Blessings, Lynda
Well done on capturing the saddness of Darcy and providing for her a loving family through her friend. Good job.
Thank God for friends! I enjoyed this story.
Ahhh, think I found it! Very good work here. A contender.
Sad but true. Many families work so hard providing for their children when all the children want is them. May there be less Darcy's in the world.
 Bittersweet, and sadly all too true for many. I like the fact this was NOT a perfect ending, for circumstances don't always come to a satifying conclusion. A joy to read.
