Though they talk on the phone once a month, Craig has longed to personally see his only sister, Carlene, who lives in Perth, Western Australia.
On Wednesday 28 January, his dream became a reality when Craig finally met Carlene, whom he’d not seen for several years.
Days before their reunion, Craig got a phone call from his Dad telling him that Carlene was flying into Auckland to meet him.
Craig was very excited and told staff that he was ‘Seeing Carlene on Wednesday!’
On that day, Craig, Carlene and their Dad (Athol) had a wonderful time together.
After the meeting, Craig went home satisfied and happy with the fact that he has a family that cares so much for him.
