Each underlying meaning wascoded in one category as they reflect an exhaustive description. Similarly, researchers compared theformulated meanings with the original meanings maintaining the consistency of descriptions.Thereafter, the whole statements and their meanings were checked by an expert researcher whofound the process is correct and the meanings are consistent. Table (2) provides examples of howsignificant statements were converted into formulated meanings.Table 2: Examples of the Process of Creating Formulated Meanings from Significant StatementsSignificant StatementsFormulated Meanings“I stay with my aunt (sister of my mother)when my mother and father died due toillness. They both died almost at the sametime. My father died January 5 due tocancer; and five days later, my mother diedbecause of“Lupus”(Transcript 1, page 1,lines 38-40).Student indicated the reason of the start ofliving with relative.“During school days since my class starts at12:50 in the afternoon, I always help in theirbusiness in the morning and they give memoney which serves as my allowance inschool(Transcript 1, page 4, lines 145 -147).Awareness of the sense of gratitude.Receiving money for services rendered.“My aunt and my uncle also treat me likehow they treat their ownchildren”(Transcript 1, page 5, lines 184-185).Acceptance as their own child.Step fourAfter having an agreement toward all formulated meanings, the process of grouping all theseformulated meanings into categories that reflect a unique structure of clusters of themes wasinitiated. Each cluster of theme was coded to include all formulated meanings related to that groupof meanings. After that, groups of clusters of themes that reflect a particular vision issue wereincorporated together to form a distinctive construct of theme. Indeed, all these themes are internallyconvergent and externally divergent; meaning that each "formulated meaning" falls only in onetheme cluster that is distinguished in meaning from other structures (Mason, 2002).Later, researchers compared their clusters of themes and checked the accuracy of the overallthematic map along with having assistance from the expert researcher in qualitative research.Table (3) shows the process of constructing the first theme "Awareness of deteriorating physicalchanges" through integrating various clusters of themes.The final thematic map developed for this study is illustrated in Table (4).
