Adeline is a person I would very much like to meet. Her personal strength, respect and knowledge of her culture is wonderful. It is strange that the meeting of east and west has been neglected for so long.
I speak from the experience of having been married to a eurasian wife from Hong Kong who's family had nothing but disdain for the Chinese with their ancient culture and deep understanding of human behaviour.
Adeline was swindled out of her childhood and inheritance by a wicked step mother and equally wicked siblings. This is world wide and history wide phenomenen.
The pity is, she never got proper legal advise, as the principles of Equity over Common Law must be alive in Hong Kong, as what happened must have been illegal. I wish her well.
