The HK adoptees community was developing in parallel to the BAAF’s British Chinese Adoption Study (BCAS). The study has played a pivotal role in helping bring together UK HK adoptees mainly from the 1960’s & 1970’s. You can read more about the study on the BAAF website:
“The British Chinese Adoption Study is a long-term follow up study of a group of 100 girls brought from orphanage care in Hong Kong to the UK for adoption in the 1960s and early 1970s. This research is being carried out by BAAF and has been funded by the Nuffield Foundation…”
