Tears of joy as woman finds lost sister after 70 yrs!

War is a terrible thing. It destroys, divides and separates families. Sometimes, war wipes out everything. War is not good!

Since after the second world war, Jennifer An had never set her eyes on her half-sister An Luoxi until now. Their family was ripped apart by the second World War. They spent their entire lives living separately in India and China, having no knowledge of the other person's whereabouts.

 

 

 

 

The heartwarming and amazing moment Jennifer An first set her eyes on her long lost 81-year-old sibling An Luoxi, was captured on film in Beijing. Tears of joy flowed as they hugged each other, reports The People's Daily Online

 

Their Chinese father An Chi Pong, originally from Shanghai, was a marine engineer during the war who was away at sea when the Japanese invasion of China nearly wiped out his entire family.

His daughter An was lucky to survive and her father never made it back after his mercantile ship was stranded in the Indian port of Mumbai.

 

An Chi Pong ended up settling down in the southern city of Chennai where he started a new family, having a second daughter he named Jennifer.

 

But he never gave up hope of seeing An again and always carried with him a black-and-white photo of his only daughter from his first marriage in Shanghai, reports China Radio International (CRI).

 

In 1982 An Chi Pong received a letter from the Chinese embassy in New Delhi saying that An had been located.

 

Tragically, he died just three weeks later without being able to contact his long-lost daughter.

Thirty-three years later her half-sister Jennifer decided to come to China to seek out the daughter it was her father's dying wish to see again.

She and her husband Balaji, who vowed when they got married to one day seek out An, contacted CRI, which has a Tamil language service, to ask if they could help.

With the couple's own searches in China having come to nothing, they were overjoyed when the station got back in touch to say they had located An!!!

Emotion: It was a shock for An to meet Jennifer for the first time, whom she did not even know existed

Even among 1.3billion people, a national government database only had two with the name An Luoxi. 

One was an eight-year-old girl and the other the 81-year-old An, who was living in Beijing. 

Jennifer and Balaji caught the next plane to the capital and the meeting finally took place on May 14. 

Reaching out: An did receive this letter from her father in 1982, but he died before he could come and see her

The younger sibling said that being able to find her sister fulfilled their father's dream and that she was 'elated' at being finally being able to meet An. 

 

She said: 'I told her that her father was a very special man and gave her stories about the enormous influence he had in the Chinese community in Chennai, for example making sure that they now have many rights like their own cemetery as a result of his efforts.' 

 

An Luoxi said that talking about the past with Jennifer warmed her heart and that she was very happy to have met her.

But it was certainly a shock for An to meet Jennifer, whom she did not even know existed. 

 

Her father had divorced her mother when she was a baby and she was raised by her grandmother in Shanghai.

An said the pain of being abandoned by her father when she was just six years old had haunted her throughout her life.

 

She told CRI: 'Everyone in my Shanghai neighborhood knew my story and they used to say "look, your father will never come back". 

'My father was the most educated from his family. He had studies abroad and became a ship captain. Loosing such an excellent man left a hole in my life that could never be filled.' 

 

Jennifer added: 'We actually thought that we were going to meet her in Shanghai, because the last address my father had for her was Remit road in Shanghai.

'We were prepared to find her there and we had a few days to spend there but everything has taken a topsy-turvy turn. We never expected to find her in Beijing.'
