While reading this article I couldn’t help but reflect on my own experiences in gift giving. I love giving gifts, for a long time I tried so hard to give my closest friends the best gifts possible. Not only would I try to give them an object or trinket that they wanted, I would also try to make the experience of opening the gift as memorable as possible. I would make gift boxes that were filled with balloons or boxes that would shoot confetti once opened. I did all this because I thought I was doing it for my friends but after reelecting about it, I realized that I did it for my own benefit.

Therefore, as a baby, the foster children could have interacting with the caregivers or not. Perhaps, these children could have developed
When considering psychological testing and whether it is appropriate for selecting foster care parents, is in my opinion, very useful for this specific selection process. As Dr. Levak discusses in the video, the first few years of child’s life are extremely crucial the development and the ability to bond, care, and form attachments with others.

After the boys’ have been playing in the wheat fields for a bit, Michele hands Filippo a toy van that his best friend, Salvatore, gave to him. Because it was Michele's best friend that gave him the van, the director uses it to symbolise friendship. Salvatore gave it to Michele as a gesture of friendship, and in this significant part of the scene, Michele gives it to Filippo to play with. This shows that Michele is offering the gift of friendship to the kidnapped boy. The director specifically uses this van because he knows the audience can remember the scene when Salvatore gave Michele the van, and he knows that the viewers can understand what the van symbolises. This part of the scene makes the audience feel warm and glad for the two boys’. When Filippo glides the van through the air, it’s as if he is driving the friendship van into new places. The symbolism present in this scene was put there by the director to make the audience feel attached to the two boys’ and their new found friendship, which gives the ending of the film a more impactful sadness for the unexpecting audience. Not only is symbolism in this part of the scene, colour is also incorporated. While playing in the fields, a filter is used to make everything look bright and colourful. The wheat is golden, and when the van glides across the sky, we can see how bright and happy it seems. The director uses this filter to make the fun moments the boys are
