When You Were Born in Vietnam: A Memory Book for Children Adopted from Vietnam
Author: Therese Bartlett

Country/Culture: Vietnam
Language: English
Type of Product: Hardcover Book
Item Number: VY79W
Retail Price: $18.00
ISBN Number: 0963847252
Description: Speaking directly to adopted children, this book offers a clear and straightforward explanation of how children in Vietnam are placed for adoption. When You Were Born in Vietnam brings to life through superb, emotion-filled full color photography the story of an adoption from an orphanage in Vietnam.
Accompany a child from arrival at the orphanage, witness the loving care that is given there, and follow the journey through to placement in a new, forever family. The Bartletts offer a brief overview of Vietnam and together with stunning photography capture the richness of the people and their culture while offering a view of the many hardships their birthparents may have faced that ultimately led them to make the decision to find loving families to raise and care for their children. A touching keepsake for all children adopted from Vietnam, the book is a must for school-aged children who are becoming aware of their own unique adoption stories as well as for the adults who love them. Social workers and adoption agencies will find it a useful tool for themselves and for sharing with adoptive familes. Families waiting to adopt from Vietnam will be especially delighted with this book, as they gain a fuller understanding of the joy that waits for them across the ocean.
Just as When You Were Born in Korea and When You Were Born in China were developed as fund-raising efforts for adoption-related projects in Korea and China, all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Catalyst Foundation, a non-profit, non-political organization founded in 1999 by a couple who adopted twin daughters from Vietnam. Catalyst aims to improve the lives of Vietnamese children through relief efforts and increased adoptions so that the children may reach their full potential. Therese Bartlett (a graphic designer) and William Bartlett (a commercial photographer) work and reside in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and are the proud parents of a daughter and a son, both adopted from Vietnam through Children's Home Society of Minnesota. The Bartletts are active members in the agency's Vietnam Families Group and developed and chaired Catalyst Foundation's Annual Family Portrait Fundraiser.
