This is the story of a mother and son who were separated at birth and miraculously reunited 48 years later. A mother’s love is the most incredible thing a child can ever know. It’s the kind of love that can overcome any obstacle. Thuy-Nga Thi Nibblett became pregnant when she was only 17 years old. Her father, on the other hand, was opposed to her having a relationship with an American soldier who was the father of her son…
“When you have a child who is half-American and half-Vietnamese, everyone looks down on you, especially your family,” Nibblett explained. Nibblett’s father took her son and placed him in an orphanage after she gave birth. Her father never told her where he had taken her son, and she never saw him again. Nibblett’s son was adopted from a Vietnamese orphanage two years later. Kirk Kellerhals was his given name.
Kirk was raised to believe that his parents were killed during the Vietnam War. He had no idea that his mother, Nibblett, had been praying for him to return and reunite with him since he was taken from her. Meanwhile, Kirk, who has dark hair and tanned skin, claims he was bullied as a child because people of different races mistook him for them. While he was aware of his Vietnamese ancestry, he knew little about his family history.
Kirk, who lives in Virginia Beach, South Carolina, has always been interested in his biological family but has never done any family tree research. At the urging of his wife, he decided to learn more about his ancestors by taking a Family Tree DNA test in 2017.
