A fascinating story for anyone interested in the adoption of vulnerable mixed-race children abandoned in the aftermath of war.

When Rena Briand adopted Tuyen, a Vietnamese orphan, and successfully brought her to Australia, dozens of families aspired to do the same.

Rena Briand’s “The Waifs” is a compelling story about battling officialdom with resilience and determination.

A tale on how a handful of compassionate women fought to get a few Vietnamese waifs to Australia.

Their opponents were formidable –
conniving politicians
hypocritical church leaders
racist social workers
and the phony “charitables” of Toorak.

A moving and courageous story.
