Amerasians Looking for their American Fathers
I am Brian Hjort, the Director of Father Founded. Since 1992, when I started my work with Amerasians, together with my friend Hung, we basically tried to follow the same direction and aim, to help Amerasians and veterans in locating each other in the best way we can. It has been a rough way, sometimes with a lot of walls to hit. Always we face people in a humble way and just hope that we can make a difference, that hasn't changed since that time.
Below are some Father Founded videos featuring the Amerasians from Vietnam and the Philippines that this organization helps. The team utilizes DNA testing that is free for the Amerasians, then a search angel/genetic genealogist is assigned to their case in the hopes of using the DNA matches and family tree to contact the birth father and/or his family.
