I felt so sorry for the poor kids. I wouldn't want to be in their place. So sad.

What sad stories to hear, these vulnerable children were sent away with no care for their wellbeing and the impact on their families. May we never forget and pray it is never allowed to happen again - anywhere. Sometimes 'time' can heal but it can never be forgotten.

I felt so unhappy and angry at what these children had to go through to find their parents.

These poor, vulnerable children, had experienced abuse and neglect. They were allowed to be sent here, which is a mistake.
