After Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese in 1975, mothers of Amerasian children began to hide or destroy all traces of their prior relationships. They burned documents.

They shred photos. They threw away letters. They got rid of anything that connected them to their former American soldier lovers. Some mothers, fearing for their lives, gave up their children to orphanages. Some abandoned their infants on the street. These children, as they grew up, were teased and ridiculed by their peers. They had sticks and stones thrown at them. They were called half-breeds. They were told they had the blood of the enemy.

Adversity, Faith and Forgiveness is the story of one of these little girls. Lynn desperately longed for her American father and her faith in him and in Jesus Christ allowed her to endure more horrors as a child growing up in post-war Saigon than most people can easily imagine. Finally her American father, before he died, arranged for her to immigrate to America so that he himself could finally close his eyes and rest in peace.

Lynns story is not the story of a victim, however. It is the story of a heroine.
