Destiny is an only child. When her parents want to adopt a girl from China, Destiny decides the adoption is too expensive. Her best friend, Mickie, disagrees and blames Destiny's reaction on selfishness. After talking with her parents and Miss Cassie, an adult friend from church, Destiny decides that she has been selfish. Her parents assure her that the new baby will not take Destiny's place in the family. By the time her new sister arrives, Destiny is excited.
Destiny's father pastors a church. He tells Destiny he and her mother chose the name Destiny because he knows God has a wonderful plan for her. Destiny's mother explains that adoption is a picture of what God does for us when He adopts us into His family (Ephesians 1:4-5). She tells Destiny that God is guiding them to adopt. Destiny's mother explains how God convicts her of wrong feelings and suggests that Destiny ask God to search her heart. Destiny carries on informal conversations with God throughout the book. Miss Cassie meets with Destiny and offers biblical counsel.
