It was an ordinary day in the Dominican Republic. Papi was bringing a surprise home to Mami and the girls.
"We should name him Liberty!"
I have brought home a gift, the American Consul wanted to thank us.
If they wanted to thank us they would give us our visas.
Liberty was running towards the tree I had normally gone to after an admonition from Mami. As Liberty was running two strange men had grabbed me and Liberty. They let us go in exchange for not telling anyone they had been there.
We have got our visas, and Mr. Victor has arranged a trip for us to go to America. You must pack your things and you can pick one toy to bring.
No, Liberty stays, final answer.
Mami's decision tore my heart, I was inconsolable.
Can I bring Liberty?
We will leave shortly, I will miss you all!
Mister Victor patted us on the head as if we were dogs. I however needed to see Liberty one more time.
Meet me in America!
My aunt says I will find Liberty in America, but I don't think it will be quite what I am looking for.
