Everybody Has Everything By Katrina Onstad

What if in one moment your entire life changed?

Can everyone be a parent? What if you don’t have the typical 9 months to prepare? What if, one day, you unexpectedly find yourself the legal guardian to a 2½-year-old after his parents are in a tragic car crash? Could you cope?

Everybody Has Everything is the heart-wrenching story of what happens when an established urban couple finds their life-as-they-knew-it turned upside down by a tragic test of fate. A car accident leaves their friend Marcus dead and his wife Sarah in a coma. Ana and James are shocked to discover that they have become the legal guardians of their 2½-year-old son Finn. Ana and James were open to becoming parents in the future but they weren't ready for it to happen in this way. Everybody Has Everything is a contemporary tale crafted with a delicate balance of tragedy and comedy, all the while addressing an ambivalence towards parenthood and the restlessness of marriage.
 
"In the end it took Ana and James only an hour to become parents."
