The wind was howling across the moonlit sky. The temperature was dropping vastly outside of Samantha Smith's house as she stood in her kitchen making hot cocoa. Christmas would be on her doorstep in a matter of days. She had spent most of her adult life alone, never really finding true love. As she walked to the window to look out, she saw the Christmas star in the sky. She smiled as she thought to herself. I wonder if I make a wish for true love, will it come true. Samantha picked up a throw off the chair and walked to the couch to get comfortable for the night.
As she snuggled in for the night to watch television, she heard the doorbell ring. Samantha walked over to the door and looked out the peephole. She didn't see anybody, but she thought she would open the door to be sure. There in the middle of her porch in an infant seat was a new born baby.
Samantha hurriedly picked the baby up and took her into the house. The air was freezing out there. Who would have done something like that to a child? She saw a note attached to the baby's shirt.
"Please take care of my baby. Her name is Jasmine Ann. I wouldn't leave her on the door like this if it was any other person, but I have been watching you. You're always home this time of the evening. I can't take care of her anymore and I don't want her left in an orphanage. My doctors have only given me four weeks to live and I have to be sure that Jasmine will be safe."
