Description
A beautiful story about adoption—and how each child is a blessing.Every night before she goes to sleep, a kangaroo prays under the stars for a baby to love and hold. One day, as she rests under a tree, a baby bird falls out of its crowded nest—plop!—right into her pouch! Now, every night before they fall asleep, Momma-Roo and Little One thank God for all their blessings . . . but especially for each other. The book closes with a quote from Ephesians 1:5: "In love he destined us for adoption to himself. . . ."
