In Sulawesi, the distribution of the Timorese Stolen Children can be traced back to the refugee migration during and after the conflict period (1975-1999). Timorese children survived to live with their foster parents or by themselves by working in various odd jobs. Their life was a lonely road as many Indonesians were oblivious to their history and their struggles. Memories of childhood in Timor were often repressed by many Stolen Children, having been cut off from contacting their real families and suffering traumatic experiences from the time they were stolen. The search to connect with members of the Stolen Children was challenging given insufficient information, the wide-spread search region, and difficulty in authenticating people’s identities due to name changes.
