After she recovered her consciousness the very first thing that Yu Wen wanted to do was to try to get hold of her mother, her two sister-in-laws and her nephew. She wanted to ask them to come to Si-An to live with them. Dz Yun agreed with the good idea.
Dz Yuen started to contact with the Hams in Pei-Jing. But the only information he can provide was: “An elderly lady with two young ladies and a little boy about 10 years old. They lived somewhere around Tyan-An-Men Square and their names”. There was no address.
With great enthusiasm the Hams searched everywhere around Tyan-An-Men Square. With such an incomplete information provided by Dz Yun, it took the Hams almost a whole year to locate Yu Wen’s mother. When they found her they tried their best to convince old Mrs. Lyan to “try” to talk to Yu Wen on a radio station. Finally she agreed.
The day before she talked with her mother on the radio , Yu Wen was all keyed-up and couldn’t sleep at all. Her mind was busy with: “How am I going to convince Mom to live with us? Would Mom be upset with me because I’ve never go home since I left Pei-Jing?”
Early that morning, Yu Wen wiped off her tears before Dz Yun saw it. Quietly she walked over to the radio and turned it on, waiting the calling from Pei-Jing.
A little before the appointed time, Yu Wen was shaking. The minute when she heard mother’s voice, she was almost collapsed. Dz Yun was shocked and didn’t know what to do. Whether should he stop the conversation with Pei-Jing or kept it going.
Finally Yu Wen was calmed down. She told her mother that it was Dz Yun and her aspiration to invited her and her sister-in-laws to come to Syi-An and live with them.
The voice of old Mrs. Lyan came from the amplifier was calm and clear. There was no excitement, hard to tell whether the person who was talking was happy or upset!
“My child, I’m very well. I don’t think it is necessary for me to live with son-in-law yet. Thank you for your good well.”
No matter how hard Dz Yun or the hams in Pei-Jing trying to persuaded her, Old Mrs Lyan insisted to turn off the microphone.
It left Yu Wen at a complete loss. She sat in front of the radio. Cold and numbness. She burst out in tears. Dz Yun sat beside her speechlessly. He thought it’s better to let Yu Wen cry.
