I was adopted in November 2016 and through my experience in foster care before I got adopted I was separated from my two biological brothers. My youngest brother, Jarmin, was separated from me when I was seven years old and he was adopted by my biological aunt and uncle. My older brother was seperated from me when I was 10 years old and was the greatest loss I’ve ever faced but through perseverance I was able to find his 5 years later. Through these experiences I have become more resilient!

Remember the word “argument” does not mean a fight in a writing context. An academic argument is more like a thoughtful conversation between two people with differing viewpoints on a debatable issue. However, you are required to take a position on one side of the issue. In order to foster learning and growth, all essays you submit must be newly written specifically for this course. Any recycled work will be sent back with a 0, and you will be given one attempt to redo the touchstone. Your submission must include an APA style reference page following the essay. In your research, you will need 2-4 credible primary or secondary sources to use as support in your essay. On a separate page, below your reference page, include thoughtful answers to the Think About Your Writing questions. References and Think About Your Writing questions are NOT included in the word count for this essay.
