Science Fiction strange visitors hobbits aliens mother children mistaken identity

Stephen King once said that he used his writing in the horror genre to confront his worst fears. His philosophy was to call them out, not hide from them. I decided to try this out and got one of my favorite science fiction stories out of it. It first appeared in Analog magazine and was later anthologized in a fantasy anthology from Questar, placed firmly in the midst of actual fantasy stories. Did writing "Hobbits" really help deal with a mother's fears? It did.
