This chapter summarizes participant responses to questions regarding predeparture identity, reasons for emigration, and the adaptation/acculturation process to either Australia or Canada. It notes that these are the antecedents to the remigration experience and may serve as casual elements in understanding the transition that follows. It observes that in-depth excerpts from immigrant narratives show remarkable similarities in expectations and experience, while giving insight into some demographically related variability. It also discusses the decision-making process that led the migrants home to Hong Kong.
