  • Daily Life of a Foster Parent?

    I'm writing a new book, and the main character is an adoptive parent of about five, and a foster parent of one. I know about the process of becoming one, but what happens while they live with you? Do you have to take them to their appointments (therapy, ect..), meet with the social worker, and arrange time with their biological family? I basically need to know things like that, so any experiences that you have with that would be great.

  • Help With Mailing to an APO Address?

    Okay, I got the flat rate boxes from the postal service especially for the military. The box says:

    Service Member's Name

    Rank

    Military organization or unit

    Fpo/AE and zip code

    But the address where I'm shipping to looks like this:

    Sgt. Doe, John

    *address* FWD-*location*

    ATTN: X&X Company XX

    UNIT: xxxxx

    FPO/AE: xxxxx-xxxx

    So how do I get that onto the box? And, where do I put a return address?

    And, if you could help me to get that address on a Custom's form, that would be great. Walk me through it? Can I put more than one item on each line for item description?

    I'm obviously not going to post his address, but I've heard it goes like

    (Organization)

    Unit #

    Fpo/apo

    Correct me if I'm wrong. In his address, next to his organization information it says FWD and then has other information. And then next to unit it has a slash and then more information. Do I just like omit that part or write it as I see it?

  • Critique My Essay? (Or What's Done?)?

    I have to hand in a five paragraph essay on German write Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. If anyone could correct grammar, ideas, anything, it would be a great help. It isn't finished, mind you.

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    An author’s views on the world in which they live often present themselves in their writing. This is the case with German novelist, playwright, philosopher, and poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Von Goethe’s strong views on the subjects of gender, piety, and death continually appear throughout numerous volumes of his works. Born to a stern lawyer and a carefree mother during the Seven Year’s War, von Goethe was raised around theater, easily influencing his later writings. His college years in Leipzig saw the beginning of his lighthearted poems, as well as the beginning touches of the darker, death tinged poetry he is also known for.

    Goethe’s writings on gender were less literary and more scientific in nature. He used the gender and nature of plants to explain the role of gender in human beings. In scientific works such as Metamorphose, and poems such as Die Metamorphose der Pflanzen, he again links the development of plants with human beings. One reoccurring theme in his works on gender is polarity. In his work Polaritat, he lists several polarities and shows them as being evident in everything in the world. Goethe strives to emphasize that to completely understand gender, you must look at the male and female as a whole, as one. By viewing any sort of organism with it’s gender in mind, we will easily look over something crucial to understanding it’s very nature. In plants, the male and female begin on the same organism, and are separated through development, and brought together again in sexual reproduction. In humans, rather than looking at the differences between the sexes, von Goethe instead studies the similarities. In Uber die Spiraltendez der Vegetation, the issue of gender itself is viewed separately from sexual organs. In this essay, both the female and the male forces of the plant contribute to its overall development. They must work together to create a functioning organism. One cannot live without the other. In Die Absicht Engeleitet, von Goethe writes that in human beings, freedom of movement is feminine, while stability is masculine. This train of thought can easily have come from his frequent infatuations with several women, such as Anna Katharina Schonkopf, Friederike Brion, and Charlotte Buff. His love of these woman quickly turned to obsession, as he believed he could not live without their love.

    Piety is righteousness by virtue of being pious. More often than not, this word would not be easily chosen to describe Goethe’s writings. It has been said that his particular type of piety does not focus on one particular religion, but many, ranging from Christianity to Islam. He concentrates on where the divinity comes from, and the means used to achieve it.To quote The Maxims and Reflections of Goethe, “Piety is not an end, but a means...of attaining the highest culture by the purest tranquility of the soul. Hence it may be observed that those who set up piety as an end and object are mostly hypocrites..” (The Maxims and Reflections of Goethe) Most interpretations of Goethe’s work rely heavily on his vocabulary. His use of certain words open up his writing and link it to works of others, as well as his own. Trilogie der Leidenschaft is a trilogy of poetry by Goethe that exemplify piety to the greatest extent. In his poem Elegie, one of the three poems that make up the trilogy, he describes arriving in heaven, and being in the presence of God. His verses tell of his gradual surrender of his spirit to the divine. Very often unknowingly, Goethe’s poems reflect a strong sense of piety without his realization. He says, “...Face life in the present with active acceptance.." (Elegie, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe) which, while simple in nature, certainly played a role in the religious interpretation of this poem. In Aussohnung, the earthly and the divine are brought together, and the statement made that whatever stage we are at in our life, we may still go to heaven, or some higher place. Because Goethe approached the issue of piety from the viewpoint of both a scientist and a poet, his opinion on the relationship between the earthly (humans) and the divine (God) greatly contradict themselves.
