It's a magnificent and awe-inspiring exhibition. Their history has opened my mind. I can't imagine that.

My oh my! How the world has changed in my lifetime! To remove children from their families because of lack of money really upsets me. To send children into the unknown at such tender ages is extremely thoughtless at best. Today we have phrases such as 'ethnic cleansing,' 'economic migrants' and 'emotionally deprived.' I do wonder how much the world has changed behind the language.

It is a fabulous exhibition and sometimes it is very poignant. It is difficult to imagine how the child would support such pain.

Sobering and enlightening exhibition. That so many overcame this beginning to build lives and families is heartening.

I am thankful that I did not have to leave my family, friends and my own country to another country.
