story takes an unexpected twist. The young redheaded narrator is at
first displeased with the idea of a new sibling but then has lots
of ideas about what they might do together. She will take the baby
to her grandfather's farm and feed the calves. Her father says they
can do that when the baby is older. She will teach the baby to paint.
Her father says they can do that when the baby is older. She will
take the baby to Africa on a photo safari. Her father says fine, but
only if he can go, too. After the girl and her father are finished
talking, she says, "We'd thought of at least a million things my new
brother or sister could do with me." Then, Father comes home with
the news that baby Isaac has been born with Down syndrome. Her father
is upset, but as the girl asks her questions all over again, they
both see that although it may take a little longer and require more
patience, they can't find one of those million things that Isaac won't
be able to do with their help.
