I really like the way you've got the short little paragraphs throughout ... 'Would anything?', 'Or did I?' etc. It was lovely to read that ending ... and yet it was a beginning. Also good was the parallels between the two 'meeting your father for the first time' stories.

Lynda, as always you are up there in my favorite list. This is outstanding work. I felt the emotions throughout. Congratulations on placing. The competition was very tight this week!
Well done Lynda! I loved the honest emotions expressed in this piece. Very real and touching.

A heart wrenching read, Lynda. Loved the potential hope for your character to tell her dad exactly how she feels and for her to find healing through a heavenly father.
Found myself choking up when reading this. The potential for healing is what lurks behind every door of abandonment. The rendez-vous clutched something in my heart, and I wanted to feel that same reassuring embrace.
