Again, late with this comment. But some people are so cynical. Maybe you could check it out a bit before declaring that it`s fake or photoshopped - the 2 most often stated words on IAB comments.

postal workers are allowed to open letters that are addressed to god or santa or any other inanimate being.
why do u think they send letters out to santa and get stuff back?

Aww reminds me of the time I got a letter off the tooth fairy. She didnt have any money for me because she was on holliday in majorca,(we were going there too!).

I think my mam was a bit miffed when I came into her room at 7 in the morning telling her I got a letter :]

I would send a letter back to the girl saying that according to Christian scritpure, lesser forms of life such as dogs have no souls, and therefore her Abbey was now just a rotting corpse in the ground. Also, I would tell her that when you die, you don`t become an Angel. Angels are seperate creatures created through a divine process only once before the creation of man.

lol you said it so well, that`s the perfect explanation that her mom should have told her instead of yes dear god received your letter.

You know, I don`t think she will be "totally" destroyed when she grows up and realizes it wasn`t God who sent that letter. She`ll probably, if she`s mature enough at the time, be thankful someone took the time, someone who was a total stranger, to help a little girl going through a rough time. If any one of you has lost a pet at that age, you`ll know it`s NOT easy. You don`t understand WHY they`re gone or WHERE they`re gone.
So for someone to something so completely selfless as what that person did, is purely amazing and makes me thankful that there are still people like this around.

It doesn`t matter what religion you subscribe to, this was sent out to help a little girl and it accomplished that. Imagine how happy she must have been believing her dog was safe in Heaven? You guys would rather crush that happiness?

Shame. Shame on you. :(

The bit with the stamps was adorable. And I know a certain little girl who`s going to win Show and Tell at school... "Who cares about your pictures from Hawaii, I got a letter from GOD." Of course, she`s gonna be totally destroyed when she grows up and realizes it`s bunk. Poor kid.

Doesnt that remind you of the Santa Clause letters? Aside from the fact it was touching and all, God has terrible sentence structure. The sentences are. Like this. Very simple. Not to mention her idea of God will soon to be like Santa Clause, unrealistic. So I see this story to be very touching and sad at the same time.

There are believe it or not, some nice people left on the planet! Maybe your just not one them! Big damn deal if it was the mother, not enough wars and famine and destruction video`s and stories on here today??? No wonder the world is the way it is with such tainted jaded little minds alive and well. Some people wouldn`t have a heart if it bit them where they sit! Morons!

That poor indoctrinated child, someone wrote.
Good grief! Her personal views just couldn`t see past the fact that it was an act of KINDNESS by a stranger. Personal choice to believe in God or not. I don`t think the child is any more "indoctrinated" then the MILLIONS of people who believe a higher power put us here. I`m not a religious person, but think what that person did was one of the nicest things I have heard,amongst all the ROTTEN crap going on in the world today! Geez Atheist`s give it a break it was a little kid for crying out loud, get political somewhere else!

its an obvious fake

the author has cast themselves as the mother.

the "angel" of the story the author wrote praised the mother (author) in three sentences.

it`s self-aggrandizing self-adulatiatory tripe. the "mother" wrote the words of the angel and made sure they said nice stuff about her.

the "mother" simply wanted people to agree with this fictitional angel character that she was indeed a wonderful person.

for every person who reads and reacts positively to the story, the mother gets a sense of self-worth and probably pees herself just a little with excitement.

Though it seems touching when one first reads it, it is actually doing more harm. Now this kid will most likely grow up and never realize that god was created by man. Like the tooth fairy, fictional characters should be out grown.

This is one of those things that doesn`t matter your belief system.

Just like santa the little girl will grow up and realize it wasn`t God who wrote the l
etter (could be God inspired...if you believe in that)

But for now it was a very heartfelt thing to do

Aww, that was cute. The first time I skimmed through it and thought that the mother wrote her daughter the letter as god, and then I was like "Wow, she`s a little egotistical calling herself wonderful"... which doesn`t make sense, considering the title but I read it again, more thoroughly and thought it was really sweet. It`s nice to know that some people in the post office are nice!

Being a theology student and a bit of an a$$hole, I would send a letter back to the girl saying that according to Christian scritpure, lesser forms of life such as dogs have no souls, and therefore her Abbey was now just a rotting corpse in the ground. Also, I would tell her that when you die, you don`t become an Angel. Angels are seperate creatures created through a divine process only once before the creation of man.

Man, I can be a real prick at times, can`t I?

BTW - I was joking. Well, what I said was true, but I`d never tell it to a kid. :D
