It is just two days until Christmas. The lights are twinkling on the tree, music plays merrily in the background, and holiday goodies have been delivered throughout the neighborhood.
But for Loralee, these jolly preparations ring hollow. Her longing to share Christmas with children of her own remains an unfulfilled dream, so when the Baby Jesus disappears from the manger scene outside her home, it feels like a painful reflection of her similarly empty arms.
With hopelessness threatening to overcome her, it is only when she looks beyond her own heartache that she rediscovers the true spirit—and peace—of Christmas.
