My parents escaped the Khmer Rouge, a Civil War in Cambodia, roughly 2 million people lives taken and my parents were a few that escaped. They fled to Thailand, went to school in the Philippines then reached the United States in 1985. Almost 30 years later, they are returning to Cambodia in search of their family, those who survived the genocide. This blog will take you through our family's journey as my parents return back since the war and as my sister and I meet family for the first time.
