From Vietnam to Australia

I just watched this documentary about a Vietnamese woman who was adopted by an Australian couple as a result of Operation Babylift. It's not only a very informative program but a very moving one. To see that babies, children and their families were used as political pawns was heartbreaking. This adopted person does a wonderful job of expressing what it's like to live with the dichotomy of being raised within one culture but come from another and have no knowledge of her original family. It's a very well done documentary so please take the time to watch but be warned..... tissues will likely be required.
