It's a short story, only a few pages long, I believe by a male author. I read it in my creative writing class in college. The main character has some kind of personal problem and then goes to work with 2 other people at a research facility. They are working on learning to speak with the dolphins. In the end, the dolphins finally complete their message to humanity, they say something like "all is forgiven, it's time to come home."
I just remember that this story really touched me, and I REALLY want to find it. It may be called "The Message," though I'm not sure. It's not new, maybe frrom the 1980's or 90's, possibly even earlier.
Thanks so much!!!!!!!

Sounds very familiar. Here's some possibilities:
- The Dolphin's Bell, short story by Anne McCaffrey
- Startide Rising by David Brin
That's all I can find for now. Love to see an answer to this one too. I remember it was a great story.
