Just read this one. It's unexpectedly powerful! I wasn't expecting that from such a short piece, especially since I'm not much invested in Nancy/Kathie. But this is lovely. Very believable, very tender, somewhat bittersweet; my heart aches a little. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thank you. Glad it came accross ok. :-)

Oh wonderful! This is actually very similar to what happened with 2 people I know - and yes, a great blessing indeed! An uplifting story, thank you Beecharmer :)
Author's Response: Thank you, glad you liked it, and it was reasonably realistic. :-)

Ah, this is much happier than Ariel's version and much nicer than mine! Thank you for bringing us the sweet and lovely take on the story :-D
Author's Response: Lol I am guessing that that's Abi? Thank you for the review, and for the inspiration. It is a bit of a tender topic for me, I think my SLOC would have been a great mum in another life. :-)

I loved this story; it was pleasant to read a happier take on the situation (although I was very impressed with the more depressing presentations from other authors as well).
I think the structuring of this one-shot is very effective and in relatively few words you capture/create several characters successfully. I'm pleased that while it's ultimately positive there are bittersweet elements, and the turkey-baster humour was done with a light-touch. Thank you for writing this.
Author's Response: Thank you ! I needed to get it out of my system I think, and I really appreciate you taking the time to review in such detail. :-) Glad you liked it, and it seemed reasonably realistic.
