In April 1975, Operation Babylift took many children out of war torn Vietnam to other countries for a better life. Amongst those babies 2 year old Nguyen Ngoc Minh Thanh was taken by mistake and included as Orphan 32 and brought to Toronto, Canada. I am Orphan 32. Let me tell you the rest of the story...

What to Expect
Orphan 32 will leave audience members often speechless and overwhelmed with emotions after an event. After composing themselves, I have often been gifted with statements like, "Thank you for sharing your moving story, can I have a hug?" "This was the best presentation ever!" Students have shared, "You have changed my life" Event organizers thank me profusely for my presentation and often send me a referral or introduction to someone else the next for their event or club.
Orphan 32 recalls the journey from Vietnam in 1975 and a chance encounter with a fellow adoptee 30 years later, which sets in motion a media storm that helps find 48 of the 57 orphans that were on the last flight out.
From there a twist in the story provides an ending that leaves people stunned and clapping for joy...
Thanh Campbell was born in Vietnam and came over to Canada as part of the last flight out of Saigon in 1975 with 56 other orphan children. His story was captured numerous times in the media. Invited to be a guest on such programs as CBC News, TVO, Canada AM, 100 Huntley Street, he has had the chance to share his life story to the Nation. The 57 Orphans’ story has been covered by many newspapers including the Toronto Star, Hamilton Spectator, Ottawa Citizen, Vancouver Sun, Saigon Newspaper, and included in the French Consulate Newsletter.
Most recently Thanh has written his autobiography titled Orphan 32 and is touring across Canada sharing his story to captivated audiences.
Thanh is also a wellness seminar facilitator invited to speak at Fortune 500 Companies, inspiring people to live well within the stress-filled environments in which we find ourselves.
