lana-noone Operation Babylift tammy-nguyen This mother’s day is particularly very special for a few thousand parents and their children because it was 35 years ago last month that they became a family due to the gallant efforts of a few courageous men and women, and the President of the United States who collectively undertook a humanitarian initiative called “Operation Babylift.” "Operation Babylift" was a $2 million dollar US initiative that airlifted over 2,500 Vietnamese orphans out of a war-torn country in 1975 to protect them from the impending threat of the Communist Regime. Lana Noone, is the author of “Global Mom: Notes From a Pioneer Adoptive Family,” and she is a Babylift mother who runs a website - Vietnambabylift.org which is a resource center for Operation Babylift history and families. Tammy Nguyen Lee is an award winning film maker who took on a personal mission to bring Operation Babylift to live in her award winning film “Operation Babylift - The Lost Children of Vietnam” which came out in 2009. We will be discussing the 35th anniversary of Operation Babylift, the impact it had on the children who were saved, and the joy it brought to the adopted parents. Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday May 4th from 10-11am CST US to join Lana, Tammy and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.
