My dad was born and raised during the scuffle of the Vietnam War with a single mother. He struggled early on his life not knowing his true identity, along with being bullied and discriminated for being “different” because the color of his skin. After moving to the U.S. in the early 90’s, the Amerasian Without Borders Foundation personally helped me and my family out with finding our true identity. This organization has helped me find my other half and brought my family, and many others together.
