“Brady was lucky, though. He had a great mom who worked at a local art museum, and he was always able to explore different cultures. He loved that! He would spend most of his days staring into the Monet paintings, just pretending he was at those places. He imagined himself staring up at the Eiffel tower from his imaginary Parisian window, admiring just how extraordinary it was. Most of all, he was enthralled with the Eiffel tower, so much so that he and his mom spent many afternoons at the library, searching for more and more information about it. Brady knew how tall it was. He knew that its height fluctuated within six inches, depending on the weather. He knew it was designed by a man named Gustav Eiffel and that many French countrymen did not originally want it standing against their skyline. Brady knew how that felt.

“Brady's mom loved him and so, without Brady knowing, she sought a job far away from where they were. One day, she got a call. There was a small university in Paris looking for someone, and she was just the someone they were looking for! Brady's mom wanted him to be where he belonged. She loved him and understood him, always.”
