Thanks Annie, for sharing your story with us!
I thought the wonderful poem tied the whole story together. Loved that. You made the love and faith of the Cartwright family shine so brightly.
Very well done.
A poignant story
This touches. I cried.
How can fictitious characteres get so close.
Thanks for this story.
Very sad story...unless Adam DOES come home! :D
Such a sad story
Very emotional story!
Poignant story. For any family to receive such a telegram must be heart wrenching to fear the worst yet hope for the best.
Thank you for sharing.
Good story I haven't heard that poem before. Thank you for sharing.
You captured everyone's reactions perfectly. I could easily see them each reacting the ways they did. Good job! :)
What a great story, Annie! Maybe because I remember a fanfic from the past telling about Adam coming home after being MIA and presumed dead, I didn't think this story had a sad ending. Your writing was totally believeable and moving, especially the scene between Pa and Joe. The whole story was true to what I know about the characters! Thanks for sharing your work with us!
How awful it must be to go through something like that. And what a cliffhanger ending! I want to know what happened and if Adam is ok! Thanks for sharing your story with us.
How very sad. It felt like my heart fell into my stomach when I read that Adam was missing in action. What a great poem. Thank you for sharing.
What a sad story, but a wonderful poem.I like it much.
