Welcome to my first shot at blogging, I am looking forward to sharing some great stories about the kids of the Wat Don Chan orphanage. I am leaving for Bangkok, Thailand on September 27th, I plan to visit with some friends and get over the jet-lag and stay there for a week or so before heading to Chiang Mai. I currently have a 3 month Visa and all I have to do is re-applying with the immigration office for a 1 year extension when I get there. I have heard some horror stories about the Thai immigration officers but once they know what type of work I am doing with the kids, it should not be a problem and showing up with a few Monks should help too. As of right now I am just getting all of my ducks in a row for leaving my home for a year. I do have to say I am a bit tired and overwhelmed but there is lot’s to do when going away for so long. This being said when I think of seeing those kids, it all goes away… First posting, DONE!
