11. The News
About 3 days later we got a call from the adoption center saying that Nancy and Bill would love to have us in their family. I was very happy but at the same time I knew I had to leave Niall behind here. Which will be the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I know I could stay here with him but I just couldn't leave Will. "Will guess what?" "You got me another video game?" He eyes growing wider. I laughed. "No, Nancy and Bill want to adopt us!" "Oh." He looked a little glum. "What's wrong? Don't you want to live with them? They're very nice and would make great adoptive parents." "Yeah but mommy and daddy are better." I hugged him tightly. "I know they are. But we have to make do with what we've got ok?" He nodded. "Ok, we've leaving tomorrow so get your stuff packed ok?" He nodded again. "Wait. My bed won't fit in my suitcase!" "I know but we'll have new beds there." "I don't want to leave my bed!" he whined. "I know but we can't take them with us." "Aww.." he sighed. "Ok now go get your stuff." I said. Seconds later the door bell rang. "Hey!" It was Niall. I hugged him tightly. "Hello love" he kissed me on the cheek. "Hey. Um we gotta talk about something." I said leading him the couch and sitting down. "What's wrong?" He looked at me concerned. "We found a couple who wants to adopt us..." "That's great!" "But.. they're moving to Australia next month." His eyes grew to size of quarters. "What?" was all he could say. "I know.." "Why can't you stay here with me?" "I can't leave my brother Niall. He's six years old, and he needs me." "I'm just gonna miss you so much." tears were falling from his eyes. "I know. I'm gonna miss you too." I hugged him tightly.
