A good place to start is the National Child Hospitals based in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Most of them have a center where they keep and raise children who were abandoned at birth or by their parents due to financial incapacity. Most provinces, from Lang Son to Quang Nam to Ca Mau, also have provincial orphanages. You can contact Vietnam MOLISA for assistance with finding your adopted child.
