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.

I wonder how these people feel when they have to pay double prices cause they are farang. I bet they don't dare to ask farangprices to their big son.

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?

Aaaarrrggghhhh, memories of bitternallen and other various culinary atrocities from FEBO automaats (think of an ATM that dispenses deep fried "things")

enough to make ones arteries scream in terror.

It did not say they were from the "country Holland, "which isn't actually a country but a region on the western coast of the Netherlands.

But you already know all this being a Nederlander.

It did say that the family was from the Netherlands.

Could they be Dutch people from Holland in the Netherlands, I wonder?

He doesn't look fat but like a strong healthy man..So i guess he ate a lot of meat/milk/clean vegy and woowee bread. Maybe he even loves cheese now.

 

I think Thailand should thank these parents for what they did. The only thing they do now is extorting them for 220 baht extra costs (Only in Thailand) for using their atm's. They also have to pay the 10-foulded farang price for Thai national parks.

 

But there are loads of other Europeans who paid a monthly fee to Foster Parents who gave it to the Thai orphans.

Most people in Britain refer to The Netherlands as Holland.   Indeed; many holiday brochures in travel agents shops refer to it as Holland too. and it is generally seen as an affectionate term.

 

Back on thread and someone should remind this Guy that sometimes ignorance really is bliss !
