My audiences are the people who think about adopting internationally and people who just might be interested in finding out more about adoption outside of the United States. I will try to use many examples of international adoption and how that affects the child. Anyone could read this paper but I believe that this information would be more interesting for those who want to find some answers about international adoption.


The purpose of my paper is to inform and to those who want to adopt internationally about straggles they might have and what’s the better way to deal with them and how to find answers. Also I will try to persuade my audience to adopt more and to change lives of those who aren’t so luck and happened to not have any family.
Thesis statement
If the U. S. department of state international adoption services would provide classes on what to expect when you adopt independently overseas then the families that are adopting would be more prepared.
Content: Background of the Problem

When you adopt overseas you are indeed changing not only your life but the life of the adopted children. You are showing them what it is like to have a lovely home and a family that takes care about you. But why do some of these children still have a hard time adapting to it? It is obvious that they will have to learn new ways in the new country but there is more to that. Some of the adopted children are not small kids anymore and have their own morals or believes their biological families have thought them. It is important to know that you have to be patient with them and show them the new and right way of growing up and help them throughout that process.

Content: Evidence

The evidence that adopted children have a hard time in learning new lifestyles are in article , “When The…...

...Nicolas Romero THEO201 B29 Short Essay # 1 Short Essay on Bibliography Bibliology from the Greek word βιβλιογραφία, bibliographia, is book writing. On its own it simply means the study of the bible. With it come the ideas of inspirations and inerrancy. The Bible is both and can be seen in its content. Being a once three time born-again Catholic, did all the steps while living with my parents, I can relate to having to be confident that what the bible says is true to its nature. The authority of the Bible comes from the Bible itself. We must begin with the beginning. Like it says in the Bible the beginning of all is with God. So with this we must begin with God himself. This is evident in Exodus 4:22 (New American Standard Bible), ‘…Thus says the Lord,’ and many other verses just like it. This happens numerous times in the bible that no one can take away anything different than that. Also, it says in Hebrews 6:13, ‘for when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself.’ This is what makes God authority over everything. This direct quote explains who God really is and where he gets his authority from. Thus the Bible being the spoken words of God this also makes the Bible have authority. Inspiration as defined by Towns(Theology for Today, 897) is, ‘the supernatural guidance of the writers of Scripture by the Spirit of God, whereby what they wrote became the divine Word of God, transcribed accurately, reliably...

...Annotated Bibliography Shin, Grace. "Video Games: A Cause of Violence and Aggression." Serendip. N.p., 4 Jan. 2010. Web. 19 July 2010. . This is a good article for my paper because it discusses how video games cause more violent tendencies in people who play violent video games than people who don’t. It states, with several other good references that people who play violent video games are more prone to repeat what they see in the game. If the game is violent then their heart rate and adrenaline increase which could cause hostility. Sometimes, people actually get desensitized to killing because they do it in video games.

Academic Search Premier. Web. 5 Apr. 2014. This article by Tal Bergman talks about euthanasia and physician assisted-suicide. are terms used to describe the process in which a doctor of a sick or disabled individual engages in an activity which directly or indirectly leads to their death. This behavior is engaged by the healthcare provider based on their humanistic desire to end suffering and pain. The psychiatrist's involvement may be requested in several distinct situations including evaluation of patient capacity when an appeal for euthanasia is requested on grounds of terminal somatic illness or when the patient is requesting euthanasia due to mental suffering. We compare attitudes of 49 psychiatrists towards euthanasia and assisted suicide with a group of 54 other physicians by means of a questionnaire describing different patients, who either requested physician-assisted suicide or in whom euthanasia as a treatment option was considered, followed by a set of questions relating to euthanasia implementation. When controlled for religious practice, psychiatrists expressed more conservative views regarding euthanasia than did physicians from other medical specialties. Similarly female physicians and orthodox physicians indicated more conservative views. Differences may be due to......

...bTanea Savage Preliminary Thesis: Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” conveys true crime and the portrayal of the killers.

...Creating APA Style Annotated Bibliographies, 6th Ed. Annotated bibliographies are not specifically addressed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. We have taken the example given online at the OWL at Purdue1 as the basis for formatting. It is a good idea to take careful note of any directions given in your assignment, and to check with your professor if you have specific questions. Contents 1. 2. 3. Guidelines Sample Annotated Bibliography Sample Standard Reference List/Bibliography Guidelines The following is a summary of things to know when creating an APA style annotated bibliography:  The annotated bibliography consists of two elements o Citation in current APA style format o Annotation The annotation will follow the citation on the next line. There is not an extra space— double spacing is used throughout. An annotation is different from an abstract. It should have several sentences summarizing the main points or ideas found in the item. It should then include your own statement evaluating the quality of the item and/or relating the item to your own research topic. For a longer annotated bibliography, it is appropriate to divide into sections or topics, and to title those sections as seems fitting.    Note: These annotations are for illustrative purposes only and have no relationship to the content of the sources. The citations are from the sample list found at the......

(2005, January). An exploration of nurse-patient relationships in accident and emergency. Accident and Emergency Nursing, 13(1), 9-14. This article discusses the nurse-patient relationships in the accident and emergency. It looks into nursing theory and research about three distinct experiences from the author. I found the article to be of interest in regards to the topic of barriers in forming the nurse-patient relationship in the emergency setting. Being an ER nurse I can relate to the authors thinking. It can be difficult to establish a relationship due to the limited time spent with the patient. Most relationships can be viewed as “superficial” or “if existing at all”. The nurse could also experience a short but memorable and intense relationship in the emergency setting. The author discusses three distinct relationships and examines them using nursing theory.

...Mediated Perceptions of Women and Female Adolescents: An Annotated Bibliography Green, C. (2013, April). The effects of romantic comedies on women and female adolescents. Paper presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), University of Wisconsin La Crosse, WI. In the article, Green points out how romantic comedies alter women’s and female adolescents’ perceptions of romantic relationships. She refers to Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory (as cited in Green, 2013) to explain how they learn from observation and copy behaviors that are depicted by romantic comedies. She advocates that romantic comedies cause women to have high expectations of their romantic relationships and that these movies or series support conventional patriarchal ideals and post-feminist ideologies. She explains that romantic comedies make women believe that the behaviors of the male partners that are depicted in the shows are truly ideal and should be expected in a romantic relationship. With all these explanations, the article answers my research question directly as can be predicted from its title. The article’s being supported with Social Cognitive Theory and concrete examples makes it more reliable. Moreover, it is quite recent. Johnson, K. R., & Holmes, B. M. (2009, July-September).
