The Boy on the Porch by Sharon Creech
The Boy on the Porch by Sharon Creech, 2013.
In a small farming community, in an undetermined time, a young couple find a boy asleep on their porch. He seems to be about six to eight years old and is unable to speak. There is a note in his pocket that says that his people will return for him, but when? John and Marta quickly become attached to the special boy, but how long can they be a family?
