Review by: Kathy Watts on Jan. 14, 2015 :
I found this story to be heartbreaking for the life that Kelli and Charlie had lived and inspiring for their faith in God and His blessings. Arriving at the end of the line and overhearing that Carter was looking for a mail order bride, Kelli looking for a way not to return to the orphanage in New York, she approaches Carter with the offer to be his bride. He needs someone to be the mother to his daughter, so they agree to a marriage of convenience. The quote that stayed with me from Carter to Kelli about her life as an orphan, "We are a family, and besides, you were never an orphan to God. He has always been your father." What a true statement. The love and compassion Kelli shows to other people, especially the orphans and Charlie was executed as Christ would want. The story is never preachy but a reminder of being grateful and appreciative for what we do have and to remember to give thanks. Kelli is the most selfless person that puts others before first in everything she does. We need more people like Kelli and less of Abbys in this world.
