Once upon a time, in a fruit bowl far, far away, there lived a Little Strawberry.
But this Little Strawberry was sad. She did not have a mother. She wanted a mother so bad. One day, the Little Strawberry decided she would find her mother.
“Are you my mother?” The Little Strawberry asked.
“No, I’m a big Banana, I’m not a strawberry!” said the long, yellow thing.
The Little Strawberry sighed. She looked around the fruit bowl again and saw a round, orange thing.
“Are you my Mother?” she asked.
“No, I’m only an Orange ! I’m not a Strawberry!” said the round, orange thing.
The little Strawberry sighed again. She looked around the fruit bowl, and saw a bunch of purple things.
“Are you my Mother?” asked the Little Strawberry.
“No, we’re a gang of Grapes! We’re not Strawberries!” the bunch of purple things replied.
The Little Strawberry began to cry.
“Is there no one here that will be my Mother???” she yelled.
The fruit bowl was silent.
Then, suddenly, The Little Strawberry heard a voice from the back of the fruit bowl.
“I’m a kind Kiwifruit!” the voice said.
The Little Strawberry looked past the big banana, the only orange, and the gang of grapes, and there she saw a Kiwifruit. And it was the most beautiful Kiwifruit you ever did see. She had a big, fuzzy, brown body and bright, green hair – just what the the Little Strawberry thought a great mummy should look like!!!
“I’ll be your Mother!” said the kind Kiwifruit. “I love Little Strawberries. They're very special fruit, just like Kiwifruits!”
The Little Strawberry was so excited, she jumped up and down. The big banana, the only orange, and the gang of grapes all cheered.
“I have a Mother! I am the luckiest Little Strawberry in the fruit bowl!!!” sang the Little Strawberry.
And they lived happily ever after in a totally organic way.
A wee story written by one daughter for her elder sister, who is progressing through the child adoption process. Eldest daughter living in UK is known as Kiwi there by all her friends.
I guess the child will be known as '' Little Strawberry." Cute Eh?
One Little Strawberry is probably going to have a profound effect on our future travel plans!
