We didn't adopt a child, we adopted an orphanage.
Big Big World Project came out of a commitment to help three girls: an 11 year old named Duyen, Hong 14 and Hang 16, whom we met in July 2008 at the Ham Tan Children's Center, an orphanage in Vietnam. These kids needed someone to call Mom or Dad, even if we were halfway around the world. After talking with a few friends and colleagues in Sep '09 and receiving an overwhelming positive response, we launched Big Big World Project, Inc. a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
