Joel Linton has been a foster parent for several children-but always with his wife, Melissa. Since her death, he has kept a closed home, living only with his memories and the pain and loneliness left to him. Unable to bear the loud quietness in his home any longer, he decides to renew his foster parent license, becoming a single dad to six-year-old Carson Reynolds. But his experience with Carson is far different than any hes had before. Carson adores Joel. He wants to be a farmer like Joel. He follows Joel everywhere. Joel becomes Carsons best friend. Joel finds himself struggling with the idea hell one day have to say good-bye to Carson even though he longs for Carson to stay forever, because a child needs a mother too.

But the six-year-old next door, Ryan, has begun to bring life into her home again. His mother is constantly gone, leaving Jasmine no choice but to watch the child who is also a student in her first-grade class. Carson is also her student, and when she meets Joel, she is surprised-why would someone choose to be a single parent? She doesnt think its for her, until shes faced with the possibility she might need to. A heartwarming tale, Laughing and Dancing Solo will open your eyes to what a child truly treasures most.
