Welcome to Father Founded, 2016 edition. From being an active search for father/ child agency, Father Founded will be changed to an lost and found page, where we will add in case we get from Amerasians, relatives, veterans and anyone else that are looking for each other.
Time,energy and economic means are low. Like any other nonprofit agency, its an struggle to make the days end. Its an balance, so we prefer to beable to have an homepage that exist rather that it all collapse
Since 1992, when I started my work with amerasians, together with my friend Hung, we basic try to follow the same direction and aim, tohelp those amerasians and veterans in locate each other, in the best human way we can. It had been an rough way, sometimes with a lot of walls to hit. Always we face people in an humble way and just hope that we can make an little different, that hadn't change since that time.
Final, we would like to thank Toni & Free Spirit Festival in the Uk, for their support ,in donate dna kits for amerasians in Vietnam, Andrea in USA, for her outstanding help in breaking the dna cases, and Dennis Hill/ Jim Reischl for always help us the best ways, no matter what we need from them.
Father Founded are NOT political, religious,racial,nationalistic platform. We are an openminded agency that work for the common good for humanity. We don't want to associated with any hatred minded people, groups, agency or govermental offices.
During the last years, incoming cases from Vietnam, had almost ceased, the remaining amerasians in Vietnam had little of no informations about their fathers and they had no reason to add in their info, since nooone looks for them too.
Cases from relatives of Vietnam veterans, had increase. Mostly are wifes, children, siblings or any other members of the family, that found old photos, love letters or other memories from the war time and now want to find out about if the veteran had and child in Vietnam.
Old cases had been updated with the new informations about those people looking, and about their whereabout. Many of those amerasians we met more than 10 years ago in Vietnam, had now moved to USA and their cases are left pending.
An case for us are not just an name, number or photo but also an human story, someone dream, wish and hope to find their love ones, and we do our best with our means to make it comes truth.

In 2014, Father Founded were lucky to make an small tv program with the British Broadcasting Company ( BBC ). We made to Vietnam, together with 2 American Vietnam Veterans, that were looking for their Vietnamese women and amerasian children. The result was an emotional tv program, were one veteran final met hes Amerasian son, in USA (More to see on "BBB Tv program).
In September 2015, I went back to Vietnam and gather up with my friend Hung. We met old amerasian friends and did an search for an relative of American women, that were looking for Amerasian sibling. We locate the old place, where the father used to serve, but the Vietnamese mother and Amerasian daugther, had moved away long time ago.

Dna test. Due to improved and cheaper dna test, then every person can buy an test for 100 usd. What it used to be for only law enforcement had also been an tool,to for look for lost family members.
There exist 3 major dna test companies, Ancestry, Ftdna and 23andme. Each companies had its up and down and its recommanded to do all 3 of them at the same time, it would give an bigger chance to find an lost relative.
