I loved the character of Maggie - a young pregnant woman who is blind and nervous of her ability to be a good mother. Then there is Elsa - who is young un-married mother who fears her baby will be taken away from her.

i wanted more of a resolution with Freddie, and maybe more of Elsa's background, rather than just the predicament she found herself in.
