She closed her eyes and made a wish. She wished she could have five little stars. She
wished they were hers to hold in her hands, to keep close to her heart and to care for and
to love forever.
When she opened her eyes, something caught her eye. There were five twinkling stars all in
a row. She knew these would be hers when the time was right. They would be there
Time passed and when the time was right her first little star came to her. She knew this star
was a boy so she named him Gabriel. He was so beautiful. She was so happy. This was the
most wonderful feeling that she had ever known. This little star was hers to keep. She took
him in her hands and took care of him. She loved him with all of her heart. Gabriel gave her
so much joy in her life; she loved every minute of it.
Some time passed and the second little star came to her. She also knew this star would be
a boy; she named him Javier. And as with the first star, she took him in her hands and she
held him close to her heart. She took care of him and loved him as much as she did her first
star. Javier was such a beautiful star. She couldn’t believe her eyes.
The young woman was so thrilled to have two stars to love with all of her heart. Each time
she thought of them her eyes filled with tears of joy.
Some time after, another little star came to her. This one was also a boy so she named him
James. She took her new little star in her hands and she held him close to her heart. She
cared for him and loved him as much as her first two little stars. He was so gorgeous she
couldn’t believe this little star was also hers to keep.
Now she had three little stars to care for. She loved them all so very much. She watched
them grow and she admired them every day. She would take them out and show them to
the world. As she enjoyed and took care of them, the years went by.
She was in shock when the last two little stars that she had wished for came to her at the
same time. She could hardly believe her good fortune. She had always wanted all boys but
when she had made her wish so long ago she had thought that this was too much to ask.
The two new tiny stars were named Andrew and Adam Her other little stars: Gabriel, Javier
and James were so overwhelmed with joy that they wanted to help all the time.
The lady’s heart was filled with joy. She took her new little stars in her hands. She held
them close to her heart and she cared for them. These two new stars were so tiny and
She had so much love in her. She had enough to give all of them the love they needed.
They were all part of her life. They were hers to keep and love forever.
As her five little stars grew, she would always tell them that she loved them all the same
and she always would. She promised that she would be there for them whenever they would
need her, just as they were there for her when she needed them. Her wish had come true;
having five little stars was a joy.
Now she knows deep inside that when the time is right she would have to let go. But even
at that time she will always hold them close to her heart and she’ll be there when they need
Five little stars that fell from the sky,
grow with all your might
let your bright lights shine,
Mom loves you all
so very,very much
