A box arrives - part 2
Angelo: I was getting excited about the package sitting on our front porch. Was it for me? Maybe it was for Adam? I ran to find Adam to tell him about it.
"Adam, there's a package on the front porch for Papa. What do you think might be inside it? Could it be for either of us? I want a new push bike or maybe it's full of new clothes for you."
|"The postie left a parcel for Papa on our front porch."|
Adam: I got all excited about the contents of the mysterious parcel but I couldn't imagine what might be inside it. I would like to have some more new clothes. We went to examine the box.
|"Let's go look at the parcel."|
We took a look at it through the door. "I don't think it's your bicycle or my clothes; it's not the right size for either. Maybe Jesse has bought something for himself, like knitting wools or books. We'll have to wait until he gets home to find out."
Angelo: We thought Papa would never get home. When he got to the porch, be bent down and read the return address. We saw a big smile break across his face.
Jesse: When I came home, I found a package outside the front door and two very excited and inquisitive boys inside. They were fairly bursting with questions, wanting to know what was in the package from overseas. I said, "I have something to tell you so let's go and sit down."
|Waiting to hear the news.|
I've been thinking for some time now that it's time to expand our little family. I knew this was the right decision when Simon came to live with you as a lodger. So, I searched for just the right boy to come to live, one who would add quality to our lives. After a long search I found just the perfect one and finally he has arrived in New Zealand after a long trip from abroad. I want to introduce you to the newest member of our family.
