About Us

Operation Reunite is a nonprofit organization dedicated in its mission to provide information and support to Vietnamese Adoptees. One of the larger efforts of extracting these adoptees out of Saigon in 1975 was called Operation Babylift-a wartime event in which approximately 3000 orphaned Vietnamese babies were airlifted from war-torn Vietnam and adopted by families in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Operation Reunite offers search support to help reunite families separated by the Vietnam War. In addition, we seek to create an awareness and understanding of the Vietnam War era and present an overview of Vietnamese culture, language, customs, and family traditions to help make your journey through time and history more meaningful.

If you are a Vietnamese Adoptee, making the decision to explore your past and discover your roots is never an easy one. The journey of discovery will undoubtedly take you out of your comfort zone, but it will assuredly help you come to an understanding of a very different time and era in our global history; a time when there was great hardship and grief. And, more pointedly, such an exploration will help you begin to understand how families and relief organizations had to make very difficult decisions-most of them based out of love and respect for your well-being.

As a Vietnamese Adoptee, Vietnam is not only your birthplace, it is your heritage. Operation Reunite cherishes the opportunity to assist you in discovering your past and helping to reconnect you to your birth families and country.
