A little girl is becoming aware that changes are coming in her little world. Her family is moving to a new smaller home and they are having a yard sale in order to sell their things. She is torn when someone buys her bike and her bed frame. Her parents have tried to adequately prepare her for this day, but it’s hard for kids to adjust to change sometimes. Even her neighbor friend is sad to see her go. They are not alone; it’s emotionally difficult for her parents too. The little girl can’t handle it any longer when a woman sweetly asks if she is for sale. Her parents would never sell her, even for a trillion dollars. They have each other, and that’s enough.
