Our story begins with the discovery of new family and a driving desire to help other families.
According to the United States Department of Justice and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), an Amerasian is: “[A]n alien who was born in Korea, Kampuchea, Laos, Thailand or Vietnam after December 31, 1950 and before October 22, 1982 and was fathered by a U.S. citizen.”
At War Babies, we promote the dignity and self-worth of all of our clients, and strive to provide excellent quality of service, individually and as a group. War Babies provides research guidance to American Veterans and Amerasians who are in search of discovering their biologic bond. We successfully do this by explaining the individual’s DNA sample process and offer tips and resources to search through a variety of public records.
Although we do not charge a fee for our services, there are some expenses involved, such as purchasing DNA kits, postage for communications and other operating essentials. We handle each case individually based on their situation and need. Donations are heavily relied on to offset the cost of successfully reconnecting families.
Our organization does not discriminate against any client, staff or volunteer due to race, religion, economic background, sexual orientation, size, gender or request for anonymity.
We also value the time, skills, and expert opinions of our volunteer staff. We are committed to providing reasonable work schedules, clear duties, rights and responsibilities for each team member.
We do not expect volunteer staff to do work for which they are not trained; we do expect them to share their suggestions for improving any aspect of War Babies working operations or case management. We aim to provide our team members an opportunity to make a difference in the world around them, through caring and expert assistance to our clients.
Each DNA kit from Ancestry, 23andMe, FTDNA and MyHeritage is approximately $120 with shipping included (unless there is a sale). If you would like to contribute so that we can purchase kits for Veterans or their Amerasian children, please do so securely below.
