Serenity’s Mommy and Daddy rode a bus from the Deep South to start a new life.
It was a sunny day when Serenity was born.
The birds were singing. The flowers were blooming.
“You are the most beautiful baby in the whole world.” said her Mommy and Daddy.
We love you Serenity. XO
The family lives in a small apartment.
Serenity’s Mommy takes care of sick people - and their dogs and cats too.
While Serenity’s Mommy works, Daddy takes care of Serenity.
Serenity likes to walk, run, and jump at the playground.
One day, Serenity saw a red balloon.
Up, up, into the sky Serenity went!
Serenity’s curly black hair blew in the wind until Daddy brought her back into his gentle arms.
At home, Grandma’s chicken soup is on the table.
Mmm - It smells so good!
“Soup please” said Serenity.
Serenity and her Grandpa then danced to the music coming from Senor Hidalgo’s store basement.
Mommy and Daddy laughed and clapped.
Just before bedtime, Serenity had a bubble bath.
Mommy read her favourite storybook and then kissed Serenity:
“Good night! Buenos Nochas!”
On Serenity’s third birthday, her family went to Washington Square Park for a picnic.
Mommy and Daddy said, “Surprise! Our family is growing!”
Everybody got a hug!
Soon Serenity had a baby brother named Caleb.
Serenity was the best big sister ever.
