One of the main aims of AVI is to create opportunities and forums for Vietnamese adoptees connect with each other and share community knowledge, resources and support. AVI have two social network groups with over 280 members. Many of the AVI members are a part of both groups which aim to be informative but also friendly and casual.
The AVI Facebook ‘Like’ Page is the best & most convenient way to get all the latest AVI & adoption news while connecting with other VN Adoptees. The AVI Facebook Page is updated much more regularly than the Yahoo! Group with current adoption news & events. This page is public so please be aware if leaving a comment. Please ‘like’ us on the left in the side bar to keep updated and your support is much appreciated.
The AVI Facebook Group is a more informal setting where the Vietnamese adoptee community has a chance to share their experiences. This is a closed group so it content is not visible to public but means it gives great space and platform for the community make it more active.
The AVI Yahoo! Group is a members only e-group (mailing list & forum) where people who want share their experiences & connect with other VN adoptees, especially for those who are FB shy or prefer the mailing list/forum format. As other forms of social networks this Yahoo group is a little more quite but still used from time to time.
New members are encouraged to introduce themselves and their interests to the group. Membership is open to anyone interested in adopted Vietnamese war orphans (this includes adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents and other interested parties).
