So much heartache in such a short story! As a mother I can only imagine the pain of having a child move away leaving no contact information. Much like the prodigal son, though, this a story of love.
What a heartwarming story of forgiveness - and a wonderful reminder of the real reason for Christmas! He came to seek and save the lost, and to forgive and make a way home. I think Ms. Diorio gave us a wonderful gift in this story!
