Throughout the story, there are subtle hints suggesting Caroline subconsciously or genetically mimics certain behavioral similarities exhibited by her birth mother. Barring disease, certainly, the topic of personality formation is interesting to ponder in fiction or in reality. Ultimately, as a society, in relation to adoption, discussions can become destructive. Each day, in the United States, more than 400,000 children are in foster care, many of these youngsters eventually become available for adoption.

Michelle Wilkins, a 27-year-old pregnant woman, went through a tramatic event. She ended up at Dynel Lane's house after seeing an ad on Craigslist about free maternity clothes. Michelle said she had to go but thought Dynel was lonely because she just kept talking over her. She stayed a while longer and listened to Dynel, thinking she was being thoughtful. After finally deciding it was time to go, Michelle was guided down to the basement where Dynel claimed to have more maternity clothes.
She acted unkind to her mother when she saw this and asked why she was doing this. When the mother confessed what she has done the elder daughter had to face up to the abuse she has put her mother through. Even though the daughter was being unruly and cruel the mother stood proud and strong and did what was needed to provide and feed her children. In conclusion, I believe this is a message of hope and love, not of poverty. The two daughters will one day be mothers, if they are lucky and might have to sacrifice life their mother has.
They didn’t know what to do when they found out that she was pregnant; they were young, they didn’t have any money, they were scared, they didn’t want to tell anybody, they didn’t know what to do, and the only option that they could see was to terminate the pregnancy. So that’s what they decided to do… they went to a clinic, they had the procedure done, and at first they felt relieved that all their problems had gone away. But then something happened that they did not expect… and that’s over the next few weeks, which turned into a few months, they began to feel an intense sadness… and a pain and an agony and a guilt that wouldn’t go away. They didn’t know what to do, so they finally went to see a counselor; they said look — tell us what to do, we just don’t know, and the counselor made a suggestion. The counselor said here’s what you need to do — stop acting like you had a procedure, and act like you had a death in the family.”
I Remember driving with my mother and brother to my friend’s house to pick her up. Arriving at the house I saw a thin, sick little kitten. But she had spunk. Looking at her, I knew what we were going to be best friends. Before bringing her to the vet I decided that her name should be Sassy, because whenever she looks at anyone she looks like she has an attitude.
Foster Care The day I got taken away was a day I remember like no other. It feels like it just happened yesterday. The police came to my friend’s house, where I was staying for the weekend and came to pick me up. I went home to get some clothes

Shortly after my sixteenth birthday, something terrible happened to me. But, first let's start at the beginning. When I was five years old my parents got me the best gift a little girl could ever ask for, a puppy. My dad came into the house with what I thought was a black jacket in his arms. I was wrong, after he came into the kitchen the “jacket” popped it’s little head up, it wasn’t a jacket, it was a puppy. We named that little black fur ball with white paws Bailey. Bailey was my first dog, and she was perfect. On all those hot summer days she would chase us all around the house outside, she would never get tired. Bailey was my best friend, we even shared the same birthday.
As an adolescent I tended to be very discreet and shy at times, especially around girls my age. Overall I was a very awkward child. While attending a coed elementary school at Monroe it was very intimidating. There were girls that were always trying to talk to me and I just wasn’t sure how to react to the situation. I went home several days telling my parents that I needed to move schools. So, for about two years, I attended Eden Grove middle school. This was an all guys school where I felt much more confident with the people I was surrounded by. It brought me to become a stronger individual. I have overcome my shyness and my personality has developed with much more confidence.
The foster home that I lived in had other foster kids and my foster parents Kathy and Mike also had children of their own as well. My foster parents children were so mean to me. I remember one time their middle child Kristi was brushing my hair and she was hurting me so I kept pulling forward. Kristi had gotten mad that I was doing that and she pulled my my hair and bit me really hard on my back. I had a bite mark that turned into a bruise the size of a softball. I was so unhappy living there. I had nobody who loved me around. My mother, aunt and uncle didn’t want me. I wasn’t able to see my father. I had no clue where my brother was. I was so alone in the world at such a young
For instance, Roberta did not know how to handle the baby they found crying in the car and made it clear that she was not aware of how to calm a child anymore because hasn’t seen one in years. This is an example of how their lives have changed and adjusted to this new lifestyle. As a woman, Roberta is expected to have the natural extinct to provide a motherlike feeling and actions towards the baby. Instead, Roberta hands the baby off to Charles and states how clueless she is about caring for a baby.
After her detachment from the familiar environment, Jeanette has acquired a new awareness that will make it possible for her to face her mother without being claimed by her. The girl’s self has grown towards wholeness and, as in a rite of passage, after the separation and the initiation, Jeanette is ready for her return home after having completed the quest in search for herself. Thanks to her newly acquired maturity, and being aware that she is unable to recede the ‘thread around the button’ that links her to the adoptive mother, Jeanette decides to make the first step towards the woman, recognising in her someone who just did her best to raise a child in the way she thought it was right. Just as her mother had initially chosen her, now Jeanette deliberately chooses her
