    Chapter 1The Birth of Sam

    Who is Sam? He is the son of the

    couple, Joy and Julie. They were from

    different states in America: Joy was from

    Washington, and Julie was from Florida.

    They met in New York City when they

    were studying in the university, and fell in

    love at first sight. In 1998, they married.

    At that time everyone felt very happy that

    these two people who loved each other so

    much finally got married.

    Joy, an engineer in a computer

    company, lives with his mother, Ms.

    Brently. After three years of marriage,

    Julie got pregnant. Their whole family

    including their friends all felt very pleased

    about the coming baby. The future-father

    and mother were the most excited ones, so

    one day they were talking about the boys

    name, Julie, I have the names for our

    baby, if he is a boy, lets call him Sam,

    or if she is a girl, how about Sue?

    I like names composed of three letters,

    said Joy. Thats great, Sam and Sue!

    answered Julie. As they decided the name

    of their son, they felt happy with the

    coming child and had great hope for him.

    In March, Joy and Julies first child is

    coming out soon. He must be a

    spring-time boy! said Ms. Brently

    happily, when she and Julie were sitting in

    the living room chatting. Julie was waiting

    for Joy to pick her up to go to the hospital

    for having the examination. The childs

    grandma had already used the holiday to

    do shopping for the babys clothing and

    equipment. This can see how excited

    grandma is to expect the child.

    Joys ex-high-school classmate, Frank,

    dropped by one day and he just heard of

    coming baby. He brought some toys for

    him, and also as a doctor, gave some

    points for attention to the mom, Julie.

    Everyone waits excitedly at the coming of

    Chapter 2The childhood life of Sam

    On 11th March of 2002, a loud-crying

    boy came to the earth, and his name was

    Sam. He was a little fat baby and his

    skin looked like Chinese-tofu, white and

    sparkling. He was so lovable that

    suddenly there were a lot of guests coming

    to Joys house to chat with Julie and Ms.

    Brently. In fact, they just wanted to play

    with cute Sam. Sam was born in this

    family, which was full of love, so loud

    laughing was always heard around Joys

    When Sam was about three years old,

    a miserable thing happened. Sams

    grandma was dying: she got sick and lain

    on the bed for more than a month. Then

    one morning, quietly and peacefully, she

    was gone. All of the neighbors are sad

    about it, only the little Sam was just

    unhappy about missing his grandma and

    had no idea what was happening. His

    father, Joy was calm and tried to ask his

    son to pray for his grandma for a while.

    After the funeral, Joy talked to Julie

    to say that he felt really sad about his

  • 7

    mothers death. Julie comforted him

    saying, Im also sad for this, but you

    know what, Jo? It is just a routine of life,

    and the final destination is death. Every

    one always thinks that dead people just

    leave the earth and never come back, but

    actually they are still standing there seeing

    us to go on walking our life. Look at Sam,

    how cute and innocent he is. Maybe we

    should learn the childs way of looking at

    life and death. It is useless to be

    depressed. You must be happy for the

    reason they are watching us going on and

  • secretly helping us.

    Although grandma

    could not beside Sam

    anymore, he would meet

    other people in his future life. One

    afternoon, he was playing in the park, and

    he was looking at the sand castle he had

    made. Suddenly, a boy was crying and

    running fast toward Sam. The superb sand

    castle was destroyed by the boys

    unexpected approach. His name was

    Fannie, and he just escaped from home

    because his parents were having quarrel.


  • They had some financial problems, and

    they were discussing with shouting angrily,

    loudly and noisily. Instead of being angry

    with the destructor, Sam

    walked towards Fannie

    and asked him to come

    along to rebuild. In a short

    time, they were happy to become good

    partners, to walk out and to play together.

    Fannie was slowly influenced by this

    joyful boy, so he became nicer and gentler.

    One year later, when Sam was four,

    Julie became pregnant with her second


  • 10

    child. And then the following year, 2006,

    the Joys family added a new member,

    Sams sister, Sue. She was not born

    healthily, because Julie had been in

    difficult labor. After Sues birth, Sam was

    always playing in the hospital instead of

    the park. He could not meet Fannie very

    often, but the friendship of these two boys

    was unbreakable.

  • Chapter 3The Boy Sam

    Sam was now a seven-year-old boy

    and he was able to do all the house works

    by himself. He did the great help for his

    father Joy, because Joy was too busy to do

    on complicated household chores.

    Sam began to

    study in school, and

    there are a lot of

    students from other

    countries, like

    Chinese, French, and Indian... Luckily,

    Sam and Fannie were in the same class, so


  • 12

    they always studied together in the library.

    They also became friends with some of

    the foreign students. For example, the

    Chinese student, Gerry, loved to teach

    others their difficult Chinese words and

    was always nervous for doing tests.

    Francois, the French exchange student,

    loved to chat with other girls, even the

    beautiful female teachers. He did not pay

    lots of attentions on studies all the time, so

    he often got the worst grades in the class.

    Although he was not so good at getting

    points, he could use his fluent English to

  • 13

    talk with people.

    Among the four students, Sam, Fannie,

    Gerry and Francois, most of the teachers

    liked Sam better. He was always the most

    diligent student in the class, and finished

    all the homework on time. He did not get

    the high grades of all the tests but he

    always smiled at what he had got. In other

    peoples point of view, they also think that

    Sam was a great boy, and he truly was.

    However, there was still something that

    waited for Sam to face and solve.

    In third grade, there was tragedy

    astonishing his peaceful and joyful family.

    While driving to visit Sams mother in the

    hospital, tired Joy hit the tree for dodging

    a dog . This car accident caused them lose

    the core of homeit was his father, Joy.

    This was really a sudden change for his

    family, because his father was the origin

    of responsible for the financial income.

    They not only had to face financial

    difficulty but also the absent of the center
