Story Summary

Greg's family seems to be falling apart, but that doesn't prevent him from wishing he had a baby sister. His prayers are answered when his mom brings home an abandoned infant that she had read about in the paper. But "Baby" is older and wiser than she seems. Eleven months and eleven days after she arrives, "Baby" announces that she has to leave and disappeared off the face of the earth. But in her wake is a family more loving and far wiser than before "Baby" had arrived
