Three points to include would be motherhood, life and justice. Remember that it is YOUR responses to the literature that have been asked for and go through the novel to look at how these isssues change and note down your feelings. Add examples and quotes and try to look for good sources such as critic views and cite them correctly. Good luck!

I would want to develop this by focusing on the way in which the protagonist is forced to change her views about adopting her daughter thanks to the revelation concerning Turtle's identity and her ethnic background. She is forced to realise that she will have, to some extent at least, to share her daughter so that Turtle can grow up learning about her tribal identity and her roots. This is one big change that life brings.
