S is for Secrets






         Amanda remained behind to seek help with a new math concept covered in today’s lesson.   She struggled with math, much as Jennifer had at that age.   

  




        Jennifer hugged her tightly, smiled, and told her to hurry on to recess.    Amanda must never guess that she was the baby she had given up ten years ago.

  18. This is a bittersweet story, Kathy. It must be hard for the teacher to look at the little girl each day, and can't tell her she's the mother. The girl even had the same problem, which adds the clever touch to the story. Love it!

    1. Michelle, the little girl probably had no way of knowing her teacher was actually her mother, but her mother would guess when she recognized things about her that mirrored herself. I am so pleased you enjoyed my story. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥
