When Ada and Jaime got back, they saw that their mom had bought a new house closer to her new job at a factory. Ada was determined to find her birth certificate because she was tired of not knowing. One day, when their mom was at the factory, Hitler's men dropped bombs from the sky, and it started a big fire. Ada and Jaime had to evacuate the building and hide under ground before the fire was put out. Their mom didn't survive the fire.
A symbol in this story is the wooden horse that Ada's best friend Maggie gave her. Maddie was a rich girl who's mom was the person who found Ada and Jaime their new home with Susan. This symbolizes how much Ada loves horses. Ada also said that the wooden horse looks like her horse butter. Ada enjoyed seeing the horse when she woke up.
In the end, Susan takes a long train to get them back from their mother, and she found Ada and Jaime underground in a safehouse. She was so relieved and she brought them back with her. Everyone at their house was fine, and now Ada wasn't sad anymore. Ada and Jaime were finally happy at their new home. Apparently, the bombs did not go off near Susan's house, and if she hadn't come and gotten Ada and Jaime, she could have died.
