Journey to Warm Heart
At only 5 years old, C is one of the youngest children at Warm Heart.
C and his older brothers, A and B, arrived at Warm Heart in early 2014 when found wandering in a field by a passerby, who called Warm Heart. Their parents worked far away and left the boys alone for long periods.
This left big brother A as the caregiver for B and C.
Warm Heart helped move the boys to Ton Roong Boarding School where the boys spent the week and then the weekend at Warm Heart. After six months of tracking their progress, Warm Heart decided to bring the boys to Warm Heart full time.
Upon arrival C barely spoke, and even less Thai. C and his brothers are now members of the core “family” of kids who live at Warm Heart year around.
The brothers are thriving at Warm Heart, thanks to after school tutors, diligent House Mothers, and friends at Warm Heart.
C has gone from speaking only Akha to nearly fluent in Thai. He also soaks up English like a sponge any time he hears it.
C’s favorite color is green and he will play any game put in front of him.
C exclaims that at Warm Heart he loves having house moms and staff to take care of and cook for him. His love of the food is apparent- if you watch at meal times C is often running up for seconds and thirds.
He also loves getting treats from P’Lin (Evelind’s Thai name) and the volunteers.
The fact that C is the baby of Warm Heart becomes apparent to any onlooker- every Warm Heart kid treats C like a little brother and every Warm Heart volunteer falls for his smile.
