BANGKOK: -- A Thai man who was adopted as a toddler by Dutch parents has returned to his place of birth to look for his real mum and dad.

 

But he faces problems as records at a Ratchaburi hospital were only kept for ten years and now Siwa Geboers is 29 years old.

 

He was adopted in the early nineties by Will and Margo Geboers now 64 and 60 years of age respectively, reported Thairath.

 

The only record he has was that he was left at Ratchaburi Hospital in January 1988, Thereafter he was taken car of at a children's home in Phayathai Bangkok before he was adopted aged two years 8 months.

 

Siwa, a logistics worker in the Netherlands said that the family were coming on holiday to Thailand and he wanted to look for his birth mum and dad. He knew it was a long shot and the news so far was not good with authorities at the hospital saying records were only kept for ten years.

 

The family will be swithing their attention to the children's home to see if they can make any progress. They are in Thailand until February 18th.

The article says: "a Thai man".

Looking for his "real" Thai "father" and "mother".

Not very real I think.

I presume he has the Dutch nationality, was educated there, grew up there, and his adoptive parents were good for him.

Yes, he was born in Thailand, probably from Thai stock, but that does not make him a Thai man.

 

Can someone please inform me where the country Holland is?

Look what a big man he became!! Looks so healthy.

 

I rarely see Thai men in his size...They must have fed him very well.

Looks to have thrived on bitterballen and stroopenwaffles. Mum and Dad look like the salt of the earth.

I admire his adoptive parents.  They are so secure in the knowledge that he loves them as his parents that they are happy to help him look for his biological parents in Thailand.  I think they're wise too: the young man will always remember what they unselfishly did for him

 

By the way, this reminds me of another interesting case from several years ago. Durng the Cobra Gold military exercise, an American corporal of Thai ancestry participated.  This soldier had been born in Thailand but was given up to an orphanage by his young poor mother.  The boy was adopted by an American couple who raised him.  When he came to Thailand for Cobra Gold, he requested help from the Thai military authorities, who were able to unite him with his birth mother for a happy reunion.  

 

I told this story to my Thai girlfriend of that time, thinking she would like this happy ending.  Instead, she said that the Thai mother didn't deserve this happiness, as she had given up the baby instead of keeping him. I disagreed, feeling that the mother had given the boy a chance for a better life.
