But at this point Sal’s mother was pregnant so when her mother gave birth the baby was dead when it got strangled with its umbelacelcord.

You mustn’t think that,” I didn’t believe him,” (page 138). If Sal didn’t believe her father 's words then she thinks she caused her mothers miscarriage and she is probably upset about this.

Their internal conflicts with cultural hybridity and their shame at the secrecy of their family, prompts Kingston and Rodriguez to use writing as means of reaching a catharsis. The first lines of Maxine Hong Kingston’s story begin with "You must not tell anyone," my mother said, "what I am about to tell you. In China your father had a sister who killed herself. She jumped into the family well. We say that your father has all brothers because it is as if she had never been born."
His father remarried with Felipa’s sister, which young Dali was not too happy about, even though he respected his aunt. Dali and his father argued about many things throughout their lives, until his father’s death. In 1922, Dalí enrolled at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid.

This is due to her mother and twin brother died during the delivery, leaving Paikea as the unfavorable child to her grandfather Koro.

The death of her relatives are instrumental in reducing her to poverty, as do the desires, the costly “epic fornications” of her forebears.

Whenever Sister would criticize how the women are treated in her society or how awful it felt to have the uterine regular inside of her, Andrew would brush off the comments as an unimportant, woman’s-only issue. Sister would further try to explain to her husband the oppression herself, and many women, dealt with every day, “but he could not comprehend such petty complaints in the face of greater issues” (Hall 33).
