The Boy on the Porch by Sharon Creech

from the publisher:

"When a young couple finds a boy asleep on their porch, their lives take a surprising turn. Unable to speak, the boy, Jacob, can't explain his history. All John and Marta know is that they have been chosen to care for him and as their connection and friendship with Jacob grow, they embrace his exuberant spirit and talents. The three of them blossom into an unlikely family and begin to see the world in brand-new ways."

Sharon Creech is one of my favorite authors.  The book is an easy read.  It's very touching and heartfelt.  It shows the unconditional love of complete strangers to a boy who just dropped into their lives unexpectedly. Though he could not speak, the deep connection between them holds no boundaries.
