Dear FVSO Board Members,
I would like to sincerely thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of FVSO. After attending the board conference call in June, I only became more excited at the prospect of joining the FVSO organization. From the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate the courtesy and warm welcome from Patrick and each of the Board members.
A little bit about myself, I was born and grew up in the Mekong Delta, South Vietnam. During the War throughout my childhood, I saw and met many orphanage kids the same age as me. I left my motherland in 1984 as one of the boat people. I’ve lived in the U.S most of my life, dreaming some day that I could go back to Vietnam to help the children in my memories.
In 2016, my husband, Craig Wynne, and I had the opportunity to accompany Clyde Lewandowski to visit Vinh Son 1, Vinh Son 2 and Sao Mai orphanages. I spent much time with the children to understand their life styles and also their needs. It was easy to see how FVSO affects and supports the lives of the children in so many ways. I was touched deeply and, at times, could not hold back my tears. FVSO inspires me in so many ways. Since my return to the U.S, I have committed myself to join FVSO to make a difference in the children's lives.
