Man adopted by Belgians hunts for his Thai parents

A Thai-born man adopted by a Belgian couple 27 years ago has returned to Thailand in the hope of finding his biological parents.

 

Pisanu Damiem is looking for them in Phitsanulok, where he was found abandoned as a four-month-old by residents who gave him the abridged form of the province’s name.

 

Now a professional dancer in Belgium, Pisanu is quizzing people in Phitsanulok using a translation app because he cannot speak Thai.

 

He acknowledged that the chances of him locating his biological parents were slim.

 

But he’s had help from residents including monks at Wat Sutsawat where he was left outside a wall 27 years ago.

 

A staff member at the hotel where Pisanu is staying has also been helpful.

 

Pisanu’s adoptive parents knew about his birthplace and some other details and he decided to come to Thailand and search. He knew that, after being found outside the temple, he was taken to the Pakkret nursery shelter in Nonthaburi.

 

He arrived in Bangkok on May 14 and spoke to officials at the shelter, discovering that police from Phitsanulok had taken him there.

 

He sought help from the abbot of Wat Sutsawat, Phrakru Prapatsotitikun, who said he was not the abbot at that time but was willing to help.

 

“The temple has helped by asking around about Pisanu,” the abbot said.

 

Anyone who has information can contact Pisanu on his “Donnez Pisanu” Facebook page or via the shelter at (092) 269 4066.

I just wonder why he is so keen to find his natural "parents", who didn't want him so long ago, for whatever reason that might have been?

My sister-in-law works with adoptees looking for their birth parents. It seems to be a real obsession amongst adoptees in Western countries

Only need say that he is a millionair, would have the choice of thousands coming forward proclaiming to be his parents

I hope this young man has watched video on Korean adoptees who find their biological parents.  Some of endings are just gut wrenching: the worst was when a biological father quickly asked for money.  No guarantee of a Happy Ending or even closure.

I would of probably done the same, it would be a feeling of something missing in my life as well as curiosity - same reasons people use those DNA research businesses..

Well I hope he has luck in finding his blood parents but also that he has the inner strength to accept that he could well be rejected again.

Can't say I care about the 4 I was forced to leave in the UK.

If they came looking for me I'd probably tell them to do one.

if he was abandoned, the "culprit" would be too embarrassed to admit his/her guilt, would rather keep his/her secrecy, i guess. either way, i wish him good luck.
