No one knew exactly how this new idea would affect the United States, but we had to take a leap of faith. Having a president ended up being a great thing for America, it brought a sense of leadership without one person having too much control. Washington, Adams, and Jefferson each had a different way of growing up, they had distinct characteristics, and they lead in various ways. George Washington was born on February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, Virginia. His father died when he was eleven years old, so he lived with his mother and would move around Virginia to stay with relatives.

His ranting about ethnic pride leaves one with pride and reflects the liberal education he had at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, where he majored in Asian American studies. I empathize with him when I notice that Benjamin’s last name and his ethnic identity are the products of his adoption as an infant into an Asian American family. There is a similarity of character between his and mine ,this happened when few of my cousins took a trip to Calabar a state in Nigeria to go find the grave of my maternal great grandfather who was sent on exile for mix communication,he died and was buried there,a thing that never happened in the Benin kingdom a to a king.We experience the same attitude Benjamin character got from Ronnie.The first person we met as we enter the city misdirected us,after all said and done we find where he was buried we were filled with joy and we paid homage.furthermore the reason for Benjamin’s visit to New York City is a kind of pilgrimage during which he wants to pay homage to his recently deceased father. This being his first time to the New York City, he is obviously lost as he does not know the whereabouts of the location. His objective is to visit his father’s birth house in Chinatown.

Many anthropologists and ethnographers have described kinship and its various forms. According to David Schneider, kinship is the blood relationship, the fact of shared biogenetic substances whereas for Janet Carsten, kinship is all about “relatedness”. Discussing the various forms of kinship, adoption is one of the them and consider to be the most important fictive kinship form. However, while studying adoption, we see that there are many challenges that comes with adoption. David Schneider, in his book American Kinship: A cultural account (1968), talks about “culture” of American kinship.
"When the sins of our fathers visit us, we do not have to play host. We can banish them with forgiveness; As God, in His Largeness and Laws"(Wilson X).This epigraph by August Wilson provides an insight into the importance of the topic in the play Fences. In Fences, the play depicts the relationships of the Maxson family and their friends. Troy Maxson, a middle-aged African American man, is happily married to his wife Rose and takes care of his son Cory whilst occasionally interacting with his other son from a previous relationship. However, the complexities of Troy 's past create issues for him and his family and their relationships begin to deteriorate.
Anthropologists identify two kinds of traditional perceptions of kinship, namely affinal kinship and consanguineal kinship. Affinal kinship is defined by the oath of marriage: Traditionally believed, when a man got married, a relationship was established with the woman which he got married to, and the woman’s family members too. Additionally, the man’s family and the woman’s family became one and therefore, a mass of family relationships were formed after the marriage. This means that the new husband of the woman becomes a son-in-law and possibly a brother-in-law, and the new wife of the man becomes a daughter-in-law, and possibly a sister-in-law. Consequently, the couple’s marriage to one another constructs a new family, that is affinal kin.

With any culture, knowing where you come from and your family is a critical aspect when defining identity. The word ‘family’ has a range of uses among Noongar people.
