It is important because this is the last time Adeline will see Aunt Baba ever again. Who needs the other the most?

Ferula regardless of the fact that she had not used Esteban’s money she somehow was deprived her independence as she had to be the perfect daughter stifled in traditions to look after her sick mother.

When you decide that success is something you want out of life, there should be an expectation of sacrifice, as well age is no exception.

Marita is a 12 year old from the Bronx, NY, and is the main character in the essay, “Marita's Bargain” by Malcolm Gladwell. These two girls are completely different but oddly enough the same as well.

Nevertheless, she is also grateful for them as they took her in after things got shaky with her other daughter which she lived with. I have observed that it is important for her living situation to involve a watchful eye over her.
