    Loz, Hemmingway told his shortest story with six words.

    Baby shoes for sale ........never used.

    More ideas along Nugget's theme:

    • Mother had run away to a different town to get away from baby's controlling, abusive father
    • Father did not know about baby, mother did not want to be coerced into staying under his "headship"
    • Story about foundling baby hits the news and the grapevine, mother feels remorse and comes forward--but now faces charges
    • Middle aged lady turns out to be a lawyer and agrees to work for mother pro bono
    • Father sees story on evening news, puts two and two together, goes looking for mother and baby...

    It might turn out to be a psychological thriller or a crime and punishment story--you decide!

    GL Tirebiter - thanks but I dont have many words really I need to focus on the woman that finds it... and what she does/how it affects her/the outcomes...without too much back story....just a different unique take but without the reptilian alien bit...

    Hi Loz! Wow you have no idea how much this story impacts me. With out giving away too much personal info. I am not able to have bio children and my dream for many many many years (or nightmare) is that I some how find a baby. It changes over the years one time a trash bag a dumspster by the river in a park you get the idea. I allways KNOW that the baby was thrown a way / discarded. I allways take the baby and try to hide it as mine, but I know that I should turn it in...sometimes the baby needs a Dr and I am so torn because I know that they will take it and give to SS. And I will go to jail. Or if the baby is healthy I know that I should have called the police and given them the baby. I spend most of the dream running and hiding. This dream has been a constant for about 15 years. It is very emotional to have it, and it takes me a while to shake it after I wake up.

    Crazy Good Luck!
