Megan Wright spent one unforgettable summer week with a boy when they were both teens. And despite a lifetime of heartache and bad choices, she has never let go of his magical definition of love, even if she has trouble believing in it. After college Megan settled for a relationship of convenience. Now she's a high powered attorney and, after the death of her husband two years ago, has been looking for help with her lonely young son.
Across town, Casey Cummins is still dealing with the tragic loss of his wife. His search for meaning and hope leads him to contact the Manhattan Children's Organization, who connects him with a fatherless child. Life suddenly takes a series of unusual twists, and soon Megan will learn that the teenage boy from all those years ago actually kept his promise, and the miracle she prayed for as a girl is only a breath away.
“Maggie’s Miracle” is another sweet story by Karen Kingsbury for the Christmas season. Megan Wright is a tough district attorney in New York. She is very focused and career driven. Megan’s husband passed away two eyars ago and she hasn’t had time for love or God since then. She is trying to raise her 8 year old son, who is still grieving over losing his dad and take care of her mother who lives with them.
Jordan needs more time from his mother than what she is willing or able to give him. He is having trouble in school and with life, so Jordan has decided to send his problems to God in a letter. Jordan, believing that his mom always has the right answers thinks that if hs mother writes the letter and mails it that God will ehar his prayers and answer them. Jordan wants God to send him a new dad for both him and his mother.
I think this story is very sweet. It shows how much children believe in their parents. I also love the child like faith that children have. This is something that adults need to get in touch with in themselves more often. I would have to say that Maggie’s Miracle is one of my favorite stories for the Chirstmas season.
