Christmas Miracle

MOUNT WASHINGTON--It was no short of a Christmas miracle.

On Friday afternoon, Crossroads Elementary fourth grader Andrea Miracle received the best present of all-- her brother, Jake.

This was going to be the first year Jacob Miracle, 19, was not going to be able to be home for Christmas with his family. He recently joined the Army and has been stationed in Italy.

It has been almost nine months since he last visited home.
