AVI site upgrades throughout 2019 – 2020

Hello AVI members!

Our beloved website is being updated throughout 2019 and 2020 by Dr Indigo Willing OAM, Dr Bert Ballard and a team of volunteer research assistants at Pepperdine University.  The AVI online community page and discussion group on Facebook is also pitching in regularly with content and information relevant to what we do.

As you know we’ve been operation since April 2000 and moved from the good old days of Yahoogroups and AOL Chat to using Social Media platforms like Facebook (see menu for links to our community page and private group with over 1000 members still active weekly).

There’s a lot going on in our FB Discussion group every week! We’ve circulated news about Vietnamese adoptee get togethers, meetings with Operation Babylift pilots and others involved, shared written research and other writings, assisted and supported our friends search for birth/first parents, some successfully, and shared regular news and events going on in Vietnam, USA, Canada, Australia and Europe.  The biggest news items we’d encourage people to check out on our FB is a Vietnamese Reunion being planned for adoptees in Vietnam for 2020, and our discussion about DNA programs etc.

So thanks for keeping our community buzzing with information, good will and knowledge.  Keep in touch!
