Five years after his two young sons got lost from the U．K.to Toronto，their father is really excited to have them back in Manchester，England.On Aug.14，the Star broke the news to Abdul Abubakar that his children had been found safe and well in Hamilton—5,600 km from their home.“Oh my God，” he said when first told.“Is that true? Where are my children? Oh my God.Oh my God.I’m absolutely shaking.I want to hug them.Oh my God.Oh my God.Oh my God.My children！” Since 2010 he’d had no idea where they were living on or if they were even alive.
After years in the dark，his kids were found.Abubakar was finally reunited with his sons in Toronto at the end of December.“I was very happy.It was a great moment.I can’t even describe my feeling on that day.It was like a dream，” he said.“Even now we are together in Manchester，I still feel this dream is not real.” A short time after they went missing，the Manchester police called Abubakar to say they had been found by mistake.
The moment he received the Star’s call，Abubakar began preparing to fly to Canada and hug his sons，but the long separation and age of his sons meant it would not be a simple reunion.Abubakar was given limited time to talk to his sons，who remained in Children’s Aid care in Hamilton.He thanked Canadians for their support，especially Children’s Aid and the Missing Kids Society of Canada，who helped him through the legal formalities.
“Talking to the boys again did not even feel real.It was amazing，” he told the Star after his first phone call with the children.His joy was mixed with sadness，because at that time，only the older son had recognized his father.It broke his heart，he said，to learn they had been given new names and did not recognize their birth names.“I can’t speak.I’m feeling so sad now，” he said in September.
For the boys，the early experience is fading.
While he’s delighted to have them back，A bubakar is also still adjusting to the new situation.
【答案】For the boys，the early experience is fading.They have been to the doctor and dentist，are scheduled to start school soon，and have joined a local swimming club.“The boys are happy in their new home，” their father said.“They play outside freely；no one is hiding them indoors anymore.They’re very excited to go out and play with other kids，and they go swimming in the local pool.”
While he’s delighted to have them back，Abubakar is also still adjusting to the new situation.“They did not remember me at all…They are aware that their new names were fake，and they call each other their real name，and I call them on their real names.“Sometimes I forget myself and call them the names used in Toronto and they tell me，‘Dad，don’t call me that name，call us our real names.’” The happy father soon laughed for the mistake he made.
