She lives with her grandmother and three younger brothers in a house with no electricity. Thom said her parents went to work all the way to Saigon to earn money to support the family.

“Last month I went back to Vietnam because of the promise I made to my daughter 10 years ago. I was wondering,“ Will she miss me? ”Thom is 19 this year, already a grownup young lady. She recognized me immediately when I choked in tears: “Sorry for being a little late”, she replied: “I’m so grateful you came back to see me”. I hugged Thom and cried happily … “
