The author begins his narrative with an incident a week before he kidnapped a black baby girl. He tells of the incident where he broke free from her mother in the supermarket, ran to the back of the last aisle, and grabbed the manager's microphone where he announced that he wanted a baby sister. He expresses his obsession to have a baby sister and tells of his parents' engagement to his curiosity regarding the gender of the baby that his mother was carrying. He provides details of the actual kidnapping of the toddler a few months younger than him, whose parents were leaders of the neighborhood black separatist organization.
