TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Brazilian woman has moved to Taipei to search for her
long-lost Taiwanese father, who abandoned her mother before she was born.
Monica Lin, 30, a masters student in Asian-Pacific Studies at National Chengchi University, was born and raised in a city near Brasilia, Brazil’s capital, called Samambaia Sul.
Monica’s father, Lin Young-Shyoung (林雍雄), also known as David Lin, went to Brazil in the early 1980’s and met her mother, Maria de Jesus Miranda de Souza, in Brasilia. The two met at a school where her father was studying Portuguese. Her mother believed that her father was an official representative of Taiwan in Brazil. [FULL STORY]
