Her answer was, “In high school, I was a freshman and he was a junior and our friends introduced us one day at school.” I realized that my father is only a few years older than my mother so this made perfect sense to me. My second question for my mother was, “What was the courtship process like?” She replied, “It mainly consisted of socializing at school. We would spend time on weekends, either at one another’s home or attending social events.” I was not surprised by her answer because it was, perhaps, a typical one. The third question I asked her was, “How long did you date before considering marriage?” She replied, “We dated for about seven years before considering marriage.” I was very shocked by my mother’s response to this question. I knew they dated for a decent period of time, but had no idea it was for seven years.
Would you be willing to make this man’s last days as meaningful as possible? (capture attention) Hospice patients usually have three to six months to live. The goal of hospice care is to help make a person’s last few months be as fulfilling and comfortable as possible. I understand the need for hospice volunteers because my mother has been one for over three years. She cooks her patients’ favorite meals for them and visits them weekly.
These groups I can identify to because it reminds me of where I came from, and how I grow up in the South. These groups mean a lot to me because as a child, my grandmother always made me go to church, and she would be a usher in church. If I didn’t go to church then I wasn’t able to go anywhere. So it’s like I had to go. Then I became accustom to going to church, and even in the summer time the church had summer programs that I attended all summer and they would feed us lunch and we would play games all day and this was like very special for me.
LaShawnda, Elaine, and Tracy had been friends for about three years, meeting for the first time at a pre-adoption workshop sponsored by a local nonprofit adoption agency with a 75-year history of helping children in the city. They had done everything possible to be selected by the agency to adopt a child. This involved allowing social workers to conduct home studies, having their employment, driving, and court records checked, then waiting for about a year until a newborn child was available. Today the women were gathering in Elaine’s backyard, where their kids could play in the wading pool and the adults could sit in the shade and sip iced tea. The occasion was Darcie’s second birthday: she was the oldest of the three kids present, and the

Final Project Student: Camellia Weatherspoon@waldenu.edu Walden University February 19, 2012 Final Project The Quest Family consists of Paul, 45, Jane, 43, Amy, 18, and Ann, 16. Paul and Jane met in college, fell in love and were married. Amy was born shortly after the wedding and two years later, Ann was born.

Jason and Luke’s mother disappeared; so, Paul and Jane adopted the boys a year later.
Every time I go back I come even more Brazilian, with my Portuguese even more fluently. We have family weekends; we go to our beach house and enjoy the days with no stress and no problems, that’s something super common in Brazil for families to do. We eat rice and beans every day, twice a day: lunch and dinner. If there is not rice or beans it is not a complete meal for us. For example, in Brazil if there are not beans my younger brother would not sit at the table and eat.
