Dr Joe Leong, recounts his personal experience growing up in Hong Kong and China in a family where his father was absent for most of his childhood. Living in North Queensland but supporting his wife and family via remittances back to Hong Kong, this forced separation and lack of presence, impacted on the relationship which later developed between father and son. While many attempts were made by his father to reunite the family to North Queensland, this information was not made available until after his father's death. This is a story of reflection.
