A Dream Come True
Coming to America From Vietnam, 1975Unknown - 2001
"One day, we visited a village high in the mountains, " Cammy's dad said. "We knew something was wrong right away. "It was too quiet. Then I heard a sound. Like a kitten mewing. The sound came from under a mat. A baby was there. A little girl. "The baby never smiled. Not even a little grin. And she never cried. She just stared. I'd never seen such a sad look. "I held that baby girl until the next day. Then a helicopter took her to an orphanage in Saigon. I hated to let her go. I felt like it was my job to protect her. "That night, I wrote your mom about the baby. I said I didn't think I would ever be able to forget how she looked into my eyes."
