Finally living with his forever family, nine years old and newly adopted, Joshua Carson, has multiple interests and talents, as well as a keen hunger for experiencing life.  He's eager to try new things.  Josh attends a mountain camp and a cultural heritage camp.  He makes friends at a ranch for special animals and people, and meets Martin Luther King, III.  Joshua believes in magic and miracles, and makes an unusual Christmas wish...would it come true?


Excerpt

My name is Joshua Radford Carson, and I'm adopted. I met my forever mom when I was eight. I'm black and my mom is white. Actually, I have two white mothers. Jamie Carson is my legal parent, and my second mom is Brooke Summer. I call her 'Momma B.' She's a veterinarian and my moms own an animal hospital together in Tucson, Arizona.

I have an older brother, Randall Jr. or R.J., and a baby sister named Amanda May. Unlike most brothers and sisters, we don't live together.

My birth mother, DeShona, drank alcohol while she was pregnant with me. She and my dad, Randall Radford, Sr., had a lot of problems and weren't able to take care of us.

We were taken from their home and went to live with my aunt and uncle. It turned out that we weren't safe living with my Aunt Suzette and Uncle Joey. R.J., Amanda, and I had to split up. We each went to live in different homes with different families.

Amanda was immediately adopted, so she went to live with her new forever family. R.J. and I were put into two different foster homes. For a couple of years, I lived with a really nice woman named LaTisha Owens, and her family of foster and adopted kids.

Then I met my forever moms. Now our adoption is final and I have a new name, a forever family, and even my own bedroom in our new home.
