Enjoy your reading! 1. Describe Sue and John Brierley as parents, and the kind of family they provided for Saroo and his brother Mantosh. I really enjoyed reading about his family. In my opinion they were very idle parents. They didn't push either one of them right away, they kind of just let the boys come to them. They provided them with a safe and secure feeling. I also really enjoyed how they gave Saroo that ultimatum because it showed that they didn't push their children, but rather wanted them to take every opportunity to be them best selves. 2. What were Sue’s experiences in her early years? What did Saroo’s mum do to lift herself out of her difficult home life? To what degree did her background as a refugee influence her desire to adopt two Indian children? It was very interesting to read about Saroo’s mum because you didn't see that side in the movie. Sue had to del with her fathers PTSD which involved many mood swings. Her father was also an alcoholic. Sue left school when she was in 10 th grade and started a job as a pharmacy assistant. She paid to live at home but saved up the rest. And at 16 was when she met John and that changed her life. Sue did have that vision of an Indian person, but I think just knowing the struggles she went through and what her parents went through made her realize that there are many children out there that need a good home.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
