Jacinda Timmerman’s new book, Who Will Take Care of Bernard?, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498455626; $4.99, e-book, 9781498455633) tells a classic theme of God's provision told through an endearing duckling's story. Bernard, a precious little duck with a heart full of love, suddenly finds himself away from his family, in a strange place. He longs for the comforts and safety of home. Afraid and alone, Bernard questions everything. How will this precious little duckling eat, stay warm and learn to fly? The story has an underlying theme of adoption that is very prevalent in Christian circles today. Unfortunately, children – one of the most priceless gifts – are often abandoned, abused or neglected. This book illustrates God's plan for adoption in a way that children can understand, in addition to challenging adults to take up the spirit of adoption and embrace those forgotten by society.

“I hope readers will know they are valuable in God's eyes and He will always take care of them,” states the author. “Too often children are neglected and/or ignorant of how valuable they are in God's eyes. Life has taught them they are worthless and alone. This should not be the case. It is a lie that needs to be revealed and reversed as early as possible.”
