In this exciting sequel to the heartwarming fable, "Freddy the Foster Frog Finds a Friendly Family," Freddy, the little frog hero, gets adopted by a kind and wise woman named Elinor. This story was actually inspired by a real-life friendship between the author and Elinor. Elinor becomes a loving mentor for Freddy, showing him what it means to be loved by God and part of a family.

As Freddy settles into his new home, he has a hard time because he's still scared and finds it difficult to trust others. He had a tough time with his previous family who didn't take good care of him. But as he faces his fears and starts making friends with his new siblings, something amazing happens—he learns how to express love! Along with the old friends like Yankee and Rex the dogs, Sue the beautiful owl, and Junior the baby frog, new characters come into the story.

The family has lots of fun together and grows closer during their wild family nights playing the game "Family Matters." And when Freddy feels ready, Elinor officially becomes his mother through adoption. They celebrate this special day by planting an oak tree, marking the day they became a forever family.

Throughout the story, the beach and their home become symbols of the light and happiness that Freddy finds in his new life. The story comes full circle at the beach, where the family is happiest. The important lesson of this story is that, with faith and help from God, Freddy builds a foundation of love that helps him overcome fear and loneliness. He learns how to trust Elinor completely and express his love openly.

So, join Freddy on his incredible journey as he learns about love, family, and overcoming his fears. It's a story that will warm your heart and remind you that love and trust can make all the difference in the world.

This fabled story with a “twist of rhyme,” is something 

you’ll not often find. 

Animals and rhymes are used to create a very safe place, 

to explore deep emotions and seek God’s grace. 

To safely look through a troubled past, 

we highly suggest you not go very fast. 

The slower you go and the deeper you dig, 

those hurting splinters are big like a twig. 

It’s much easier with animals and rhyme, 

to dive into painful memories one at a time. 

This story is about Freddy, the little frog with a troubled life, 

and how kind, old Elinor saved him from further strife. 

While reading this story, you might find yourself 

wandering on your own rabbit trail… 

So, let the story lead you so God’s plan can prevail. 

As memories arise, you can heal from the past, 

and become free from the pain that won’t last.
