When Joel John Roberts left hotel quarantine in Hong Kong on

When Joel John Roberts left hotel quarantine in Hong Kong on July 13, he had an important meeting. Roberts, 60, was reuniting with his biological mother, who had given him up when he was two weeks old.⁠

Each day in quarantine, Roberts’ mother, now 80 and who wants to remain anonymous, dropped off food.⁠

“She said ‘I’ve never been able to cook for you or buy you food’ so she wanted to make up for lost time.”⁠

It was 1961 when Joel John Robert’s mother, then aged 20 and unmarried, gave him up. “Back then there was a lot of stigma if you were pregnant and unmarried.”⁠

Roberts is one of many children born in Hong Kong in the 1950s and 60s to have been adopted by Western families and taken to countries such as the UK, Canada and the US.⁠
