Looking for my parents… "Reunion at the Graveyard" published

Residents of leprosy sanatoriums in Malaysia were allowed to have children, unlike the residents in Japan. However, when the babies were born, they were taken away from the parents, and brought to a baby home. The parents had to look for relatives who would look after the babies. Often enough, the children were adopted by families in and outside Malaysia, disregarding differences in religion, culture, and language.
The aged residents’ last earnest wish is to know whereabouts of their long lost children, and if possible to have a glimpse of them.
There are now the children of the residents, looking for their long lost parents.
Madam Noraeni’s journey to look for her parents started when her adoptive mother passed away. Her voyage to look for her biological parents ended with Ms EanNee Tan’s findings that her mother has long left this earth.
However, Madam Noraeni did not stop her journey there.
With her family’s full support, she has started to talk about her experiences,
touching people’s heart, moving the descendants of Sungai Buloh who would not want to disclose about their past.
Madam Noraeni and Ms Tan spent 2 years writing a book about her and their journey.
The book “Reunion at the Graveyard” is out in Malay.
The launching function is now available at the youtube (subtitles in Malay and English available). It is worth spending 28 minutes watching this!
This tells us what it means to connect parents looking for their children, children looking for their parents. It is much more than digging old files and trying to find who and where their parents/children are!!
