Children's Story Competition

iStock_000003251995XSmall.jpgWe were inundated with some amazing stories that spoke straight from the heart.  Some stories had us chuckling with laughter, others were deep and emotional, and yet more were filled with details that took your breath away.  

Each story was well thought out, telling a vivid tale with a beginning, a middle and a natural ending.  It was hard to make a final decision, and one that was deliberated over a long time.

We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition and for those who didn't make it onto the list below, we hope you continue writing such fantastic tales.
