“Even though she feels sad and frustrated sometimes, it doesn’t mean that they don’t love and care for each other.
In fact, they love and care for each other a lot! There are a lot of things about her family that Jamie loves.
And of course, Jamie loves to spend time with her brother. They’ll play together in her backyard, and color together in the kitchen.
He knows the names of every car on the road, so Jamie loves going on road trips with him, too.
Even though there are some things that make Jamie sad, there are many more things that make her happy.” (some parts of the story)
