I'm new to this forum, but I thought I'd drop in and introduce you to Alyssa, an adorable 4-year-old with a past, and the couple who adopts her, Kelly and Jason Moore. The blurb is below:
When a tragic accident on the interstate leaves an orphaned 4-year-old in her charge, social worker Helen Carstairs is certain she's found the perfect couple to adopt her. Jason and Kelly Moore are a young couple in her congregation with a strong, steady faith.
The only thing that would make life more perfect for Kelly would be a baby of her own, not an enchanting four-year-old with adorable green eyes and the brightest smile this side of heaven. God seems to have other ideas and soon Kelly finds herself wondering how she got along without the little bundle of energy.
So, what are the odds that the bearer of so much joy would also be the catalyst that uncovers a secret Kelly thought long buried in her past? A secret which could undermine her faith and destroy her marriage, all in one fell swoop. But, as her world threatens to crumble around her, Kelly discovers the miracle of second chances and realizes God doesn't play the odds.
Matilda at Coffee Time Romance Reviews gave Alyssa 5 cups and had this to say:
This was a wonderful and very surprising treasure of a story. What a wonderful premise this story takes on. Faith, Love, and miracles can and do happen in this feel good book. I had tears in my eyes through most of this story. What a blessing Ms. Patrick has given us!
