While comprehensive statistics on Asian adoptees are very difficult to find, the most accurate information comes from the U. Department of State, who keeps track of all immigration visas issued to orphans, which are required for international adoptions.The table above shows the number of such visas issued by years(s) and country of origin. But in the latest year where statistics are available (2008), it was surpassed by Guatemala.One month before the South Vietnamese government fell to advancing North Vietnamese communist forces, "Operation Babylift" was approved by President Gerald Ford that would airlift 2,700 orphans out of Viet Nam to be adopted by families in the U. Many of these children were those who had lost their parents, were children of American GIs whose Vietnamese mothers had put them up for adoption, and/or were malnourished, sick, or disabled.After a disastrous first flight that crashed shortly after takeoff and killed 154 children and adults on board, several planeloads of Vietnamese children eventually landed in the U. and were adopted into predominantly White families.There’s even a few other “types” of blind dates, but those are specifically for different purposes: 미팅 (meeting) – A group blind date, mostly for young college students.

Celebrating Every 100 Days People around the world celebrate yearly anniversaries; really lovey-dovey couples celebrate monthly anniversaries; and unhealthily obsessed teenagers celebrate even more often. Of course the big yearly milestones are celebrated just the same.

On the "push" side, an oversupply of children from impoverished areas in Asia combined with a cultural devaluation of girls frequently leads many birth parents to give their children up for adoption. The practice of Asian-born children being adopted by primarily American (and predominantly White) parents began during the Korean War, as many Americans (including Harry and Bertha Holt, who later became the founders of Holt International, the nation's most well-known Asian adoption agency) sought to remedy the plight of growing numbers of children in Korean orphanages by adopting them and bringing them to the U. Estimates suggest that anywhere between 110,000 - 150,000 Korean adoptees alone currently reside in the U. After the passage of legislation that eased the adoption process, the practice became increasingly common in the 1970s.

During this time, several Asian countries experienced political and/or economic upheavals that resulted in the worsening of living conditions for many of their citizens, particularly poor, working class, or rural families.

These events led many families in vulnerable circumstances to be more willing to give up their infants and young children to be adopted.

One of the most visible examples of this situation were the events surrounding the end of the Viet Nam War in 1975.
