“Mama, how come our family only has one kid?”
“Well, Little Pup, you’re the only child we have so far, and maybe the only one we’ll ever have. But we thank God for you. Your arrival made us a family.”
“Wally’s family has eight kids! And we only get one?”
“God gave them their family,” Papa said, “just as he gave us ours. Families come in all sizes.”
“We could ’dopt a baby,” Little Pup said.
“Adopt?” Mama asked.
“Yeah. Like Ben’s family.”
“That’s something to consider,” Papa said. “It’s special when a family adopts a child as their own. It’s kind of like how God makes each of us part of his family. Choosing us, loving us, forever.”
“God gives us family in lots of different ways,” Papa said. “Look at Graham the Goose. His mama is raising all those goslings herself.”
“Yeah, but they get to see their dad this summer. He lives on another pond.”
“Sometimes a mama or papa can’t be a part of raising their kids every day,” Papa said. “But they’re still family.”

Exploring the gift of family, the author explains in the simplest and sweetest terms, how God places each and every individual into the safe cocoon of "family", which can sometimes look very different on the outside, but accomplishes the same purpose on the inside.
And, "because we're family, we figure out how to get along".
