A Letter from Vietnam's President
Thien Nhan's mum, Mai Anh, received a letter from Vietnam's President commending her for having adopted Thien Nhan, and wishing her family a joyous Lunar New Year. In an official letter, President Nguyen Minh Triet said that Mai Anh is a wonderful example of a Vietnamese mother. Since adopting Thien Nhan three years ago, Mai Anh has worked tirelessly to raise funds for her injured son's care and to find the best medical help possible.
"People sometimes make thoughtless comments and Thien Nhan is now old enough to understand that he is different from other kids," says Mai Anh. "I worry a lot about his future. I am very grateful to those who support and care about him."
