Thai/US teenager: Please help me find my American dad

BANGKOK: -- A Thai/US teenager has appealed to the Paweena Foundation for help in finding his long lost dad, an American citizen.

 

Parinya Tollet, 18, from Buriram spoke to Paweena Hongsakul yesterday about his difficult life after both his dad and his Thai mum dumped him with his grandmother at age 6 months and left.

 

Now gran is 84 and sick and Parinya misses his dad. Gran just has her pittance of a national pension and nothing else to make ends meet.

 

Parinya said that his gran told him his father was called Antonio Tollet.  His parents lived together in Buriram.

 

After mum gave birth and when Parinya was just six moths old dad fled to America. The couple had argued frequently about the mother's gambling addiction. Soon after his mum dumped him too and he spent all his life with his grandmother.

 

He only finished primary school , then turned to boxing competing at temple fairs for 1000 - 2000 baht a fight. He occasionally worked in odd jobs too.

 

Sanook.com said that Paweena, whose foundation helps the general public in many ways, would contact the US embassy to see if Antonio could be located.

He sound "whiney" to me.   If we assume that granny did her best and raised him right and proper then that is all anyone can ask.  If the story is even true and dear old dad is an American and is in the States then good luck finding him and then what would he do after that ?  It's the cynic in me that is thinking that now that granny is in bad health he is looking for a sugar daddy.

 

Maybe instead of taking on windmills and working the occasional odd job he ought to try a more full time approach and make a go of it on his own.

I tried to read the article however it is in Thai.

 

I note from the English OP that there does not appear to be any attempt to contact Mum, who is Thai (and assumed either is herself or has family close by). So why dad and not mum?  Would he be looking for dad if Dad had a Thai name and passport? One has to really wonder about the motivation behind this.

 

This all sounds like a revenue gathering scheme to me, for good reasons or bad. Perhaps Tony prefers the anonymity that his son is giving mum..

    Just because it wasnt written, that isnt to say that it hasnt happened .

He quite possibly is in contact with his mother

Maybe he wants to move to the USA. With an American Dad, depending on the details of his status, maybe that's possible.

Its quite natural for Children to want to see their Parents .

There are other things in life, more than money .

Yes, maybe he does want his Fathers help , his Father owes him for not being there for him when he was a child

So you are an American who got a gambling addict pregnant by accident. One fled back to his home nation, and the other abandoned the child.

 

Speaks volumes on the minds of both parents before conception.

Tollet, or a misspelling

Its taking a Toll on him. I can understand that. That which does not wish to be found will not be found. Feral fathers here are common here. Nuff said.

Seems to me its time for Mr. Tollet to man up. Doesn't make any difference what his mother was like its not his kids fault. I had a Bxxx of a first wife but always kept in touch with my daughter took care of her financialy and put her thru University. He  and any dads here should make sure their child has US--UK birth cert /passport and for US social security card so even if they leave child can come to US to work or go to school,
