Oh wow! How heart-rendering sad! You did a good job of portraying the mother's emotions as she made such a hard decision. Well done.
Wow! This is goose-bump inducing. This story needs to place high, for it is well done!
I agree with the earlier comments. Diaries are such an intimate. insightful means for telling heartfelt stories. And, you did it well with this account.
Nicely done. Thought I was going to learn a new word. Even looked it up prior to reading.
What a touching story. I was glad for the way you brought understanding and peace to your main character.
This is such a powerful story. My heart aches because I know there are many families in this situation. I wish I were healthier so I could be a foster mom, a soft place for so many brokenhearted kids to land. I continue to pray for them and now I'm trying to be an example the best way I know. Your story is one so many people need to read. It really touched my heart.
Ugh - I am so conflicted - initially I thought, "What mother EVER leaves her kid?" And I was determined to dislike the mom. Then we find out the reason for dropping the kid off and it makes sense. Such a compelling piece. Well done.
Oh, my goodness. So sad that these kinds of things really do happen. You drew me in, wondering why the mother had left her child. Well done.
Well written. I could imagine the events, visualize the scenes, and feel the emotions.
Congratulations on ranking 1st in your level and 21 overall! Happy Dance!
