WOW! This is beyond words, I can only say WOW again. To say anything more would be an insult to the clarity and brilliance of this story.


God bless~
Wonderful message here, and so well written. It was very interesting, and the ending was great!
Love radiates throughout your writing and I'm the better for having read it.
Congratulations on your receiving EC! God bless!
Congrats on your EC!
God bless~
I am sitting here sobbing. This is such a powerful piece, I'm not sure if it is your story, but I know it is someone's. I became pregnant at 18 and considered adoption and even for a second abortion went through my mind, but only as a flash. I know how difficult my decisions were and my baby was conceived in love--teenage love--but love nonetheless and my family was supportive. It was difficult so I can't imagine how painful this decision would be. This is one of my all time favorite stories. Congratulations and a Happy Dance for you and your superb writing and a Happy Dance for all those young girls who make the horribly difficult decision of choosing life, even if that life was conceived in hatred.
Wow, what a moving story! You make a strong case for giving life, no matter how difficult it may be. Congratulations on a well deserved EC.
What a beautiful love story you have shared with your readers. I hope this entry will serve to help others make the choice your MC did, because--as you said--only God knows the purpose of each life. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on placing 7th with this deserving piece.
Congratulations Leola, on your well deserved EC win!! Wow—what a powerful story! The heart-wrenching pain of the MC, the message to do what is right in spite of the costs and the vital pro-life message just vividly leaps from the lines! You need to submit this to a pro-life magazine or web site! Great job!
Your story was totally engrossing. From your title all the way through to the beautiful ending it held me captive. Well done and congrats on your EC placing.
