    " I got a real kick out of this short story. A couple adopts a baby who proves to be a bit of a handful. I won't give away any of the story but I loved the description of the parents desparation at the end of the story. Quick read. Give it a try! :) "

About the Author
Author Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton (1862–1937) was born in New York and is best known for her stories of life among the upper-class society into which she was born. She was educated privately at home and in Europe. In 1894 she began writing fiction, and her novel The House of Mirth established her as a leading writer. Her novels The Age of Innocence and Old New York were each awarded the Pulitzer Prize. She was the first woman to receive that honor. In 1929 she was awarded the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Fiction.
