Nellie O’Malley, Her Life, Her Time
Nellie looks terribly unhappy in this snap shot from American girl collecting here is why.
A lot of you probably know the basics of Nellie O’Malley, right? That she’s an orphan, Samantha’s her best friend, but you probably don’t know all the details of her life, right? Of course I’m right! I’m always right! Well, anyway, Nellie’s life is down below.
Nellie O’Malley is an orphan at first, until Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia adopt her and her two sisters, Bridget and Jenny. But before this happened, Nellie and her sisters had to live in their mean Uncle Mike’s house, that nasty man, he abandoned Nellie Bridget and Jenny! That meant they all had to go to an orphanage. But, that orphanage was no good. Nellie couldn’t see her sisters at any time of the day! So, Samantha makes a plan to help the girls escape from the orphanage! Nellie thought she was the luckiest girl to have a best friend, Samantha!
She felt very lucky to be living with Samantha and her aunt and uncle, but she couldn’t help feeling responsible for her two younger sisters and she worried about the future. Nellie promised her mother before she died that she would keep Bridget and Jenny safe.
Nellie ran into her Uncle Mike on the street once. He said he was going to take Nellie, Bridget and Jenny back with him, so they could work at the factory, and he would get rich, because he would take the money 😦
Nellie then saw him in the parlor, she was really afraid he would take her and her sisters away. He was their only relative, so he had parental rights to them. But, she found out Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia had asked him to stop buy to sign papers, so they could get special rights to own Nellie and the girls!!! That would mean Nellie, Bridget and Jenny would get adopted by Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia! Nellie stood up for herself and her sisters. She told him mistreating children was against the law, so he better sign the papers!
I hope you learned a little something about what Nellie was going through. I thought this was really interesting, what about you?
