Jeanette, Lori, and Brian are very upset about having to move again.
Mom we are hungry and we need food.
Oh I love this tree, I have such a beautiful painting!!!
In the middle of the night Jeanette, Lori, and Brian are woken up by their father telling them that it's time to leave
I'm so happy in New York
I'm on my way to my new editing job
WooHoo! I am finally a police man
Mr. Walls left his family at home knowing that they need him. He goes to a bar, gets drunk, and passes out.
I miss my children and there is no where for us to go
Don't worry, I will try to find a job
Mrs.Walls chooses to worry about painting a tree that she saw and liked and not care for her children.
Jeanette and her siblings grow up and they move to New York City where they all live a great life individually. Now they don't have to worry about money, their alcoholic father, or their mother.
Mr and Mrs Walls are all alone on the streets of New York by themselves with no food or a place to sleep. They miss having their children with them. They begin to realize that their children kept the family together but now that they are gone everything has fallen apart.
