Sometimes Fate steps in to find
What we can't live without.

The road to you was mighty long,
Filled with doubt and fear.
The miles between us seemed to grow
With every passing year.

Stuck in immigration,

I must admit, knowing the young lady who wrote this (my daughter) and the young lady for whom it is written (my daughter's best friend) makes this poem really special to me. They are both great young ladies, and I am partial to them both! Keep writing Whistle, and someday I'll read your book. Mother

What a lovely way of giving the Baby her history. I do hope that they will all live happily every after and that she will grow into a sweet and beautiful lady surrounded by love. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

A charming and heart-felt response to an encredibly moving scenario. The word jewel is a perfect metaphor to describe the 'value' of the gift received with such profound joy and after so much longing. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxx

'Sometimes Fate steps in to find What we can't live without.' Great line, I love it as well as 'you were Jillian within our hearts'.

This is tear-jerking. It is also a superbly crafted piece with intelligent observation. At this point (12 October 2006) you have posted but two pieces; and these show already diversity of style, masterful writing, and an ability to draw your readership in (and tightly) . Excellent work and I think I speak for many in saying I would like to read much more. t x
