‘The Gift – A Christmas Miracle’ by Joanne Clancy

tg jcSTORY: Julie wants only one gift this holiday season, but it’s going to take a Christmas miracle to make her wish come true.

Julie Hamilton loves Christmas. It’s her favorite time of year, from the cinnamon smell of freshly baked mince-pies to the excitement of buying gifts for family and friends, decorating the tree, and hanging stockings for Santa Claus on the mantelpiece.
This Christmas promises to be extra special because she’s expecting the perfect gift–her first baby–on Christmas Eve.

However, a chance encounter turns her world upside down, and soon, she’s praying for her very own Christmas miracle.

Can the spirit of the Christmas season and the kindness of strangers find a way to make her wish come true?

REVIEW: Julie Hamilton and her husband, Shane an ER doctor, are expecting their first baby on Christmas Eve. She knows it’s a boy too.  As she has always loved everything about Christmas, Julie is absolutely thrilled.

On December 22nd, Shane arrives home early to tell her that her gynecologist called to tell him that her latest blood work showed her iron was dangerously low and she needed to go to the hospital right away and to induce her labor early.  After several lengthy procedures to get her labor started, she finally enters the last phase and safely delivers a son whom they name James Joseph.

Soon Julie is recovering, snuggling and nursing James Joseph as they prepare to be released from the hospital.

In the meantime, a woman dressed in a nurse’s uniform enters the hospital and brazenly heads to the nursery where she simply bypasses the busy nurses.  Knowing she wants to steal a baby boy, she enters Julie’s room chatting with each of the mothers.  She confidently approaches Julie telling her that she needs to take James Joseph with her to have some blood work done. Since he has just been checked the day before, Julie is surprised but reluctantly hands James Joseph over to her.

When time passes and her son is not returned to her, panic sets in and it is found that James Joseph is missing!  It is a horrendous shock and fear that Julie and Shane experience.  Why did this woman take the baby?  Will the police be able to find James Joseph and return him to his loving parents whose hearts are broken.

This is a story about a true Christmas miracle.  Reading how the story unfolds and the tension builds when James Joseph goes missing is probably every parent’s worst nightmare.
