The Life We Were GivenNPR coverage of The Life We Were Given: Operation Babylift, International Adoption, and the Children of War in Vietnam by Dana Sachs. News, author interviews, critics' picks and more.
"The saddest story ... of the war in Vietnam had nothing to do with soldiers or ideology and has never been fully told. ... Thankfully, Dana Sachs fills that void with The Life We Were Given, one of the bravest and most wrenching books I have read about the war. All the victims and heroes of the Orphan Airlift come unforgettably to life in this beautiful book."—Tom Bissell, author of The Father of All Things.
