I cannot remember if there was any story like this one -- of 86 year-old Mariam Sahari who left Malaya for Korea 61 years ago without ever being able to contact her family and, is now finally returning home to her three children in Johor.
Circumstances prevented her from returning home.
Her children -- Ramlah, Jailani and Jamnah -- now in their 60s and 70s, thought that she had died in the war as there was no news from her.
They could hardly believe the news that their mother is still alive and is coming home.
Mariam never forgot her children those lonely years away from home. Neither did her children forget her.
Who would have thought that after all these years, mother and children would be reunited?
Their wish to be together has now come true.
