An Amish Baby for Christmas by Vannetta Chapman is the 8th Indiana Amish Brides novel. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone. An Amish Baby for Christmas is a cute story. I enjoyed reading it. I love when a book makes me laugh. I thought An Amish Baby for Christmas was well-written with realistic main characters. I enjoyed getting to know Abigail and Thomas. I felt bad for Abigail who is in the rough stage of pregnancy when your feet swell, your hot all the time, the baby is pushing on the wrong places, you have the need to use the bathroom every half an hour, and you are just plain miserable. The poor thing could not get her feet into her shoes (she needed a good pair of slippers). Thomas is a kind man who has a unique business. I thought he had come up with a clever way to make money. I loved Mammi Troyer. She is a sweet woman whose faith is strong and she is just who Abigail needed. I enjoyed the humor sprinkled throughout the story as well as the wise sayings. There was one scene with Thomas and a diaper that cracked me up. We need more feel-good stories like this one. An Amish Baby for Christmas is a touching Christmas story that will leave you with a smile on your face when you finish it. An Amish Baby for Christmas is a heartfelt tale with puffy feet, a mothering Mammi, fallow fields, a demanding mother, financial difficulties, and a cheery Christmas.
