When first opening My Saigon Diary, by Edie de Chadenèdes, readers are transported to another world—a world similar to, yet alien to our own, Saigon, Vietnam in the early 1970s. This is not another Vietnam memoir set in steaming jungles. This is a story about Edie de Chadenèdes, a Stanford-educated expert in early child development, who traveled to Vietnam in the early 1970s to help evaluate Vietnamese orphans—many with severe physical, emotional and mental disabilities. Edie soon discovered that the real problems were not the orphanages, but with the adoption agencies. These agencies had no understanding of the effects of the severe neglect the children had experienced: malnutrition, lack of touch, abandonment, and an absence of thereputic resources. These children would never be “normal.” This was the world that Edie de Chadenèdes found herself in, and this is the true story of those six long months. This book is now being published in the hope that this story, although having taken place more than forty years ago, is quite pertinent in these times.
