1963 – The Birth of Boy
The new-born baby boy brought much joy to the family. Finally, the Chens welcomed the first grandson. During that age, it was a wife’s duty to give birth to a boy. When I was in Grade Six, I visited my classmate to see the new-born baby who was the sixth girl in her family. Even today, I could still remember the sense of depression and disappointment when their dream of a boy was shattered.
