Overview

In the Arms of Grace is the powerful story of a modern woman warrior and her battle for physical, emotional and spiritual victory. As a Vietnamese and an American, she provides a link between the two nations through her life experiences. From her days as an orphan in Vietnam, when she sang and danced for American G.I.s, to her "ideal" life of having it all in the United States, LeChristine Hai constantly searched for love, security and belonging. Her "rags to riches" story shows the underside of the "American Dream." Enduring years of emotional and sexual abuse at the hands of her adoptive American father, LeChristine ultimately refuses to be a victim and transforms her life. She takes charge of her own life and becomes a successful business woman, only to discover that she still must confront the pain of abandonment in order to find true peace. When LeChristine Hai's soul search leads her to a reunion with her lost and found Vietnamese mother and sister, she comes full circle and learns how to heal the personal wars within. As she embraces her authentic self, she also opens her heart and life to reveal the healing power of love and courage.

LeChristine Hai's uplifting story traces a journey of the heart. From an orphaned girl in Vietnam to a troubled life as an American teenager to the powerful woman who embraces the past and lives in the present, LeChristine demonstrates the power of faith. Her hardships have made her strong and compassionate. Now, through her non-profit organization, achild.org, this survivor of wars both international and personal is providing a means for others to help children overcome poverty and neglect. Her goal is to create a bridge from war to peace, reconciling Vietnam veterans to those for whom they fought and suffered. Through her life and her work, LeChristine shows us how to turn our trials and tribulations into inner power tools for personal success and spiritual development. Through her dedication to children around the world, she is a living example of the grace and hope that the life of one person can promise.
