The Boy on the Porch by Sharon Creech
Oh my gosh! Grab a box of kleenex when you read this very sweet story about a little boy and his foster family. One morning a couple wakes up to find a small boy fast asleep on their porch. A note lets them know that the parents plan to return to claim him but never says when. The childless couple enjoy every moment with the young boy and soon grow very attached. When the absentee father finally makes an appearance, the heartache and heartbreak begin. But there is always a rainbow at the end of a storm and this book will leave you with a smile on your face.
