There lived a girl named Emma in America. She lived with her mother, father and grandmother. She was very fond of her family members specially her mom. After some months Emma’s grandma died because of illness. Emma’s life became depressed. Some years later Emma’s father died in an accident. Her life became difficult and sad.
The neighbors used to call them the unlucky family but Emma and her mother were always ignoring their comments. Three years passed by. Now Emma was 9 years old. Her mother was still sad but a little more cheerful than the last 3 years.
One day Emma was out and her mother went to a nearby fair. It was the biggest fair anyone could imagine. Suddenly a stove burst and all the people in it died. Emma hurriedly returned when she came to know this, but when she saw her mother’s body on ashes, tears filled her eyes and she screamed with fear, anger and sadness. Now, Emma had nobody, nobody except her family photo.
Though Emma was small, she was strong. She knew crying would not work. She went back home, muttering under her breathe. She was very upset and did not know what to do. Suddenly she remembered her uncle, Mr. Radcliffe. She called him and told him what had just happened. He said that he would come to America, take her to India (where he lived) and would take care of her.
Emma was happy to hear this. She packed her things and took her family photo in her bag. Her uncle came one day later and took her to India, as he had promised. Her uncle had a son and a daughter. They were very happy to meet their elder sister. When she and her uncle reached, Emma received a huge hug from the children and her aunt. They were all very pleased to see her. Emma was felling a little better now. They took great care of her. Emma was happier than ever.
Years passed by and Emma became beautiful, kind and well-mannered. Now Emma was 23 years old. She had passed collage with highest marks. She always had the dream to be a teacher as she loved children and schools. She gave interviews and was selected at her first try at the school ‘Loreto House’. When she came home and told them about this, all of them were very happy, glad and thrilled.
Emma and her family are now very happy. Thus, Emma lost a family and found another.
