Sara and I had been travelling companions in September 1961, Sara was 13 months old, and I was 26 months old when we left Hong Kong for England. We were met at Heathrow Airport by our adopted parents for a new life which was going to give us all the advantages of the westernized world! I had managed to find out that Sara now lives in Australia but her sisters and family still in the UK so it was only a matter of time that we would meet. I had always wondered what had happened to the girl I came over with and It was with the help of Karen also pictured here that I had been able to trace Sara.
What a momentous day it was! We met in the Forest of Dean on a lovely summers day.
Believe it or not her adopted sister Fran and I had met in Hong Kong at the CAAWR Reunion in 2010 when they just happened to be passing through to celebrate their sisters 50th birthday in Australia!
