Did you see Call the Midwife Christmas Day Special? One of the story lines was about orphans being brought to the UK from Hong Kong as part of the United Nations Year of the Refugee Programme. It took place in the early ’60s, and 103 babies, mostly girls were brought to the UK. Over 600 went to the States, and smaller numbers to other countries.
Here are five of us, by coincidence, here in Hong Kong at the same time. I’m going to tell more of the story that comes before the ‘finding my family story’ soon, but for now I have to keep this short. I’m a bit pre occcupied, with my new family and catching up with my fellow adoptees. I’ve also now got two DNA mysteries to solve, that get more bizarre and exciting by the minute.
Apologies to cut this short, I’ve got an awful lot of catching up to do….
