Read an Excerpt

“Good night, sweet child,” Mama said as she tucked Little Cub in.

But Little Cub wasn’t quite ready to go to sleep.

“Mama, where did I come from?” she asked.

“From God,” her mother answered. “Your papa and I were alone, and we wanted a baby.”

“And you got me?” Little Cub asked, her voice muffled by the covers.

“Yes, my special child. God gave us you.”

“When we found out you were growing inside me, we were so happy! Even the angels were celebrating for us!”

“Because of me?” asked Little Cub.

“Yes, my darling child. Because God gave us you.”
