About Us - Our Story

      In a remote area of Vietnam, where the green rice fields fill the countryside.  A faint cry of a newborn baby could be heard. A small newborn baby was taken to a rural orphanage. This tiny one was taken to her new home where someone would take care of her. Even though she had many new brothers and sisters (other orphaned children) and new moms (caretakers) she was all alone, or so it seemed.
    On the other side of the world, in America, the Tarr family was a typical All-American family.  The father was working all the time in the business world.  He was working hard to bring life to his family, or so he thought.  However, he failed to bring his time to them.  The mother was working hard to raise their son and daughter.  She was a stay-at-home mom tending to the house, and homeschooling the children.  They had a beautiful dream home, two cars, toys(both kids and adults), and the family pets.  Everything seemed to be set.  The family was complete.  Right?
       The year was 2005.  God had been preparing to show this family a hole in their hearts for a special little girl.  That little girl was born in Tam Ky, Vietnam, south of Da Nang.  In 2006, this  baby girl was united with her forever family that God had planned for her all along.  Through the adoption process, God opened up the eyes of the Tarr family to the poverty and disparity of Vietnam.  He also laid a heavy burden for the forgotten children of Vietnam.
       The year came in 2008, when the Tarr family finally following the call they felt from the Lord, moved over to Vietnam and began working with the orphaned children there.  This organization started off with small activities, but grew fast as more needs became clearer.  The organization received its US government status as a Nonprofit Organization in August 2008.  Now, they are based in Texas on the United States side, and based in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam where the Tarr family resides and works with the children on a daily basis.
       This organization started off with just taking aid to the orphanages with needs.  Now it has grown to also supplying medical and educational needs, and  helps to support 3 local orphanages with needs as they come.  THOH now has relationships with some of the best medical facilities in Vietnam, and they work together to help those children with medical needs.
