Well written and touching story. I enjoyed reading it. Bit of a paradox because Spock's mother Amanda was human and bore Spock (who was green blooded) without dying. Not the most important part of the story though. Most striking to me is your notion of an afterlife; not unique in fan fiction but very much not canon as for 40 years Star Trek has intentionally and studiously avoided that issue. Roddenberry was an atheist which is why religious references in Star Trek are generally presented as cultural remnants from less enlightened days, rather than having any true meaning. Nice job of stepping "outside the box" as it were.
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It is heartwarming to read such a response. Good to know I could write something creative like this, instead of just boring old reports. I always noticed the lack of a spiritual component to Trek. That was one of the things I found so fascinating with the work of JMS. His B5 series was extremely spiritual. But I was a Trek lover first. Now I say spiritual because it's very different from religion. Don't even get me started on religion. My thought is that the blood no matter what color shouldn't pass through the blood/blood barrier between mother and child, period.

Wonderfully, warm with the children. Sad for the loss of Jim. Yet with hope and love from beyond the grave. The mental conversation had me in tears.
Thank you posting this, nicely done.

Thank you for braving the first posting. Welcome to the K/S world. I had never thought about the heeling power of children as a vehicle for a fic, It's a good one.
Just one word of warning, once you start writing you will find it hard to stop!
Author's Response: Once I wrote it I couldn't wait to post it! Thanks for your review. I'll keep that in mind about the potentially addictive nature of writing! LOL I am writing another story! It will be much longer!

Very sad and just a bit confusing during the mental 'conversation' (I can't always tell who's talking), but interesting and well-written.
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I'll keep your comment in mind when writing conversation. I knew that conversation could have been easy to misinterpret who was talking when I broke Jims speech. I'll go in and put it back together for clarification. Thanks!
