Childrens book – something about a boy who is adopted and arrives in a tin can. Any ideas?? (1970’s)

Someone please help me.

There is a Childrens book out there, from the 1970’s. It is undoubtedly out of print by now. I am sure it was called Conrad, but no search seems to confirm this. It was about a woman who decides to adopt and gets the titular child. Shes him takes him shopping several times for toys, food, clothes etc.

The cover of the book was a black background with the child emerging from a large tin can.

Anyone have any ideas????
