A Blessing from Above (Little Golden Books)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

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. . . ."

This book is currently unavailable.
