She has an abundance to give. Well done!
This is a great story! I first laughed at: "Hey, this is not a safe place for you." My heart swelled with: "...and wrap my mother arms around him." I loved: "The storm is over." My only suggestion would be to have stopped with that line. You have also shared an important message. Very well done.
The contrast between the abundance of the world your disillusioned main character leaves behind and the abundance of the love she finds she has to offer is beautiful.
The short paragraphs with plenty of space between makes this easy on the eye. The one part of the story that I would have deleted was the "by some miracle" and the boy's lifejacket - it was perhaps a bit clichéd. Otherwise there was plenty of action and tension.
