Ellis Island Family History Day

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Molly was very sad. She missed her friends. She missed her house. She missed her cat. She missed Ireland.
 
2     Molly, her da, and her mam were on a ship. They were going to America.
 
3     Molly's aunt and uncle lived in America. They lived in a big city. They lived in New York City.
 
4     Molly looked at the ocean. It was so big. She was so far from her home. She started to cry.
 
5     Molly's da saw her. He put her on his lap. He patted her head.
 
6     "Why are you so sad, our Molly?" he asked.
 
7     "I miss my room . . . and my house . . . and my cat . . . and Kathleen . . . and Kerry . . . and my school . . . and my bed . . . and . . .
 
8     "Slow down, slow down," Da said.
 
9     Molly wiped her eyes. She sniffled.
 
10     "We will have a house, our Molly. And you will have a bed. And you will have a cat, too. A big, round, furry orange cat!" he said.
 
11     "Will he look like Tiger?" Molly asked.
 
12     "He will," Da said.
