Just for fun we asked our kids some questions. Below are Saran’s answers to some of the questions.
Who’s your best friend?
Jaran, Pokpong and a friend from school
What do you want to be when you grow up?
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
The power to be able to help other people
What are the five best things about being you?
Good at sports and math
What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever seen?
If you had three wishes, what would they be?
I wish my parents would live forever
What do you do when you’re scared to make it less scary?
Think about good things
Who are your three best role models?
Saran is growing into a very nice young man. Aloof, awkward, and out of it when he arrived, Saran first showed his stuff in school. Alone with his books, he was more than fine; he even won a big prize. Older now, he has developed the social skills to hold his own among the other kids. Now his intelligence is coming into play in a new, bigger arena. I expect to see Saran continue to develop into a fine and successful young man.

2015 – Journey to Warm Heart
Saran arrived at Warm Heart with a sense of urgency in 2010.
Hoping to break the circle of poverty and crime, the Thai Military asked Warm Heart to take in eight children from La Wu, a small village on the Thai-Myanmar border known for violence and its location on a drug-trafficking route.
Saran has one older sister and one younger brother that remain in La Wu.
Though Saran misses his family, three dogs and five pigs he left behind, he loves having friends, playing computer games, and watching cartoons at Warm Heart.
He is always involved in the after school pick-up soccer game.
In school, there isn’t a subject he doesn’t like. He loves math, Thai, music, computers, and social studies.
He has so many interests he doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up, but we know it will be something great!
