It’s been a busy day today, and the activity is not over yet! But when all the dust settles, I’m looking forward to starting When I Found You, by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
The story is about a middle-aged man, Nathan, who is out duck hunting and finds a newborn baby boy. Nathan and his wife are childless and he hopes to adopt the boy, but the baby’s grandmother emerges and takes custody. Nathan makes the grandmother promise she will one day introduce the boy to Nathan as the man who rescued him, and life goes on.
Fifteen years pass and things haven’t gone well for the grandmother and the boy, who is now a difficult teenager. At her wit’s end, she brings her delinquent grandson to Nathan’s doorstep, and hands him over. Nathan vows to never give up on the boy, but years of hard times are ahead, including a life-changing trauma.
