Gifted

Susan and her husband Brent have waited 10 long years to have a child. They've done everything humanly possible to be able to have one naturally, but now they've given up on that and are trying to adopt a child. One morning Susan receives a phone call asking them to come to the office of their adoption people that afternoon. Unsure of what's to come she and Brent make sure that they can make it. The news they are given there is the best news that they could have hoped for. They are chosen to adopt a six week old preemie whose parents were killed in an accident and who has no other relatives able to care for her. Susan is thrilled as she quits her job and prepares to go and meet there daughter Anna in a Santa Fe hospital. When she sees Anna for the first time her world changes, everything is brighter, happier. She and Brent fall completely in love with Anna and life is good. It isn't until 3 years later that Susan and Brent realize that Anna is Gifted. She makes life better for everyone around her. The kids in her primary class learn better, rooms become more beautiful, people don't fight around her. She truly has a gift, but should Susan and Brent hide Anna's gift or should they share her with those around her? This was a really sweet book, about love and concern for others. I loved it, I couldn't put it down! I laughed and I bawled like a baby. The characters seemed so real to me.
