Here is what Matt said about his life changes in an interview.

It’s like getting a new life, I mean, living with the Tragers.

Being the oldest kid in Rosario Landing isn’t something you’d be proud of. People who go there usually want younger kids, babies even, because babies remember little about their real parents, and it’s easier for them to become close to their new parents. I felt happy for those who left with their new families. I really did. But it got harder to be happy for them when you were never the one to go.

I never thought Nicole and Thomas would pick me. They said they felt like they had known me for many years. After spending a few afternoons with me, they decided to take me home.

It’s never easy to have a stranger in your life. Lori is nice, but she’s too polite, like I was just one of her parents’ friends. We talk, but not very warmly. Sean deals with it better than his older sister. I slept in his room before I had my own, and we got to play tricks on each other three nights later, like real brothers.

If there’s anything I can do to make them feel easier with me. I’ll try. I Want to, because, for the first time in my life, I feel that I belong somewhere.

Dear Wendy,

You ask me to send you a picture of my family. Here it is.

The picture was taken in our garden by my cousin. It took me some time to get everyone together. My younger sister, Gigi, was so excited about taking pictures. She made my mom stand between my two brothers, and made my dad walk to the back and then to the front. Finally, she had him sit down under the tree. She even made our dog, Rover, move three times, but Rover did not like the idea of taking picture, so he ran into his doghouse. I am the one behind the doghouse. As for Gigi, can you see where she is?

Wonderland is the hometown of minifishers. Because the winter there is cold, they go to warmer places for the winter and go back home the next spring to have their babies. Every year, hundreds of minifishers visit Starland. They stay there with their families for several months. They usually sleep during the daytime and wake up in the evening to look for food. Small fish are their favorite.

Minifishers were first found in Starland one hundred years ago. Now Starland has become their most important stopping place for the winter. But this could change soon because people in Starland are thinking of building factories near the minifishers' winter home. Minifishers are shy and do not easily change the way they live. Can we do something to help these friends from the sky? Though making money is important, people in Starland should know the lives of other animals are important, too. Let's work together to help them.

Dear Luke,

My daughter Angela is very quiet. She seldom talks to us, and she does not have any friends. What’s worse, she is not interested in studying. All she does every day is watch TV and play computer games. I have told her hundreds of times that she should study hard, but she does not listen to me. What should I do?

Tim



Dear Tim,

The problem with Angela is not that she does not study, but that she does not talk to people. If she can make some friends, her life will be more interesting.

Perhaps Angela has had this problem for a long time. It won’t be solved soon. You should spend more time with her and help her. This is the homework both you and your daughter need to do!

Daddy,

When I told you I want to marry Mike, you said a 22-year-old girl is too young to get married. You also think it’s dangerous to marry a man I’ve known for only one year. But I don’t think so. I’m smart and old enough to know Mike loves me, and we’ve known each other well enough to start a family.

Mike used to smoke a lot and wear long hair. But he stopped smoking because I hate the smell. He also cut his hair short because I don’t like men with long hair. Isn’t it great to marry a man who changes himself for me?

Amy


Amy,

I think you’ve known Mike long enough as a friend, but maybe not long enough to marry him. You’re still young, and I hope you can take more time to understand him better. Mike’s changes show he cares about you. But you both should know love doesn’t really mean changing or even losing oneself.

I’m worried about you because I love you. I never thought my little girl might leave me so early. But if you think you’re ready for a new life, I will see you off with smiles and best wishes.

Daddy

What can we learn about Amy’s father?
