Foreign correspondent Bronson Bailey, 49 years old, doesn't know what's wrong with him. Is he burnt out by his many years reporting human rights abuses? Is he simply lonely? Georgine Nichols, a decade younger, knows she's lonely-but it's a child she longs for, not a husband. Unable to have children of her own, George has long since given up hope of having a family, until she considers adoption as a single mother. In this tender, moving story, a little girl in a Chinese orphanage-a child whose very existence is a miracle-teaches them both the life-changing power of love.
