My heart ached and my eyes filled at this beautiful tender story.

I have tears in my eyes. You painted an outstanding picture with your words. I felt like I was a bird near the window, watching it all unfold. You touched my heart and lifted my spirit.
My family is currently facing a similar dilemma.My brother-in-law is having cognitive issues after his time in the ICU this summer. We're not sure if this is early onset dementia or something else.

He was placed in an AFC home a couple of weeks ago until a psychologist can determine the extent of his memory issues.

You painted an accurate picture of what a home is like.
You made me “feel” and that’s a good thing. You showed the progression of this story well.
I have not been in this position, but a good friend of mine was, with her brother. This is such an accurate depiction of what she went through. Well written piece, thank you for sharing it.
Such a heart-breaking story! I used to work for group homes for adults with developmental disabilities, so I was thinking this was where your story was going. This seems even more painful for you.
Congratulations on you 6th place finish, Sandra.

I loved this poignant and sobering story. I'm pleased the judges awarded a well deserved EC to you.
God bless~
