Transcript of Gaby, Lost and Found
Gaby, Lost and Found
By: Angela Cervantes
Gaby is a twelve year old girl who volunteers in an animal shelter. Gaby makes signs to help get the animals adopted to a good family.
One day Gaby's mom gets deported back to Honduras. Gaby is left with her dad, who barely works and never pays attention to her. Gaby is feeling all alone.
One day at the shelter Gaby falls in love with a cat named Feather. Feather was dropped off at a rest stop by her owners because they didn't want her. Gaby hopes that when her mom comes home she can adopt Feather and they can all be a family.
One day Feather's owners come to the shelter to claim their lost cat, but Dr. V said they have to wait until the paperwork is clear and they would have to come back the next day to pick her up. That night when the animal shelter was closed, Gaby took Feather out of her cage and took her home. She could not let these mean people who left Feather once take her back. The only problem is that Gaby's father does not like cats, so she hides Feather in the basement.
One morning Gaby talks with her mother on the phone. Gaby tells her mom all about Feather. Her mom is working hard to try to get enough money so she can pay a man, called a coyote, to smuggle her back into the United States. On the journey back to America, the coyote steals her mother's money and leaves her stranded in Guatemala. Now the only choice is for her mother to go back to Honduras with her family.
Dad finally gets a good job, but it is 300 miles away, and Gaby would have to move. Gaby is sad to leave her school, friends, and Feather. After a long discussion with her father it is agreed that Gaby can stay with her best friend Alma's family. Now Gaby can legally adopt Feather and live happily until she can be with her mother again.
