Young couple, John and Marta, wake up on day to find a boy asleep on their porch. Unable to speak, the boy can’t explain his history. What kind of person would leave their child with strangers? All they know is that they have been chosen to care for this boy. As their connection to him grows, the three of them blossom into an unlikely family.
I finished this book in one day it was so good. I just wanted to know if this boy would ever say anything or if someone would show up looking for him.
In the beginning, the couple has no idea what to do with the boy. As the story goes on, they still have no idea what they’re doing but they start calling him ‘their boy.’  This book proves the power of unconditional love, that you can love a child even though they aren’t yours.
