Lisa attended the Muriel Tonge Tribute held in Los Altos, California the weekend of February 28, 2015. Muriel Tonge was the Supervising Nurse at St. Christopher’s orphanage in Hong Kong during the early 1960’s. We were so fortunate to have her share with us her memories when she worked at the orphanage.
The experience at the tribute was magical for me. I see my life like a jigsaw puzzle. I try to put it together with many pieces missing.
In the big picture; I’m just a tiny piece in a much bigger puzzle. All of the Hong Kong adoptees are tiny pieces too. And when we meet, it is emotional. Muriel was able to give me three large pieces to my small puzzle. And she gave countless pieces to the big picture.
I feel honored to have been a part of the tribute. She is a positive uplifting person with lots of humor. She gave and cared and did so
much for the children. I just loved listening to all the stories and
I will treasure her forever. -Lisa
