Sleepy in Seattle

Yesterday, Thien Nhan and his family accompanied Son Michael Pham of Kids Without Borders to a Rotary Club luncheon at the Seattle Yacht Club (see photo), where more than 100 attendees gave the family a standing ovation. A journalist from The Reporter presented Thien Nhan with a toy mobile phone, and the tot promptly "called" his big brothers in Vietnam and had a long, imaginary conversation.

Tired out from jetlag, Thien Nhan fell asleep as soon as he'd finished dessert. Reporting on their second night in the US, his mom Mai Anh wrote:
"TN woke up last night at about 2am and played by himself in the dark. I heard him calling: "Duck duck!" and saw him playing with a toy duck given to him by Mr. Phi, a Vietnamese American man we met. He also called Little Minh on his new toy phone, then put the duck and his foot into my shoes and moved around the room quietly for about half an hour. Then he went back to bed by himself and slept soundly until 7am."

Thien Nhan is a wonderful kid! Reading about his activities and development has become my habit and addiction. Thien Nhan - keep up the spirit! Stay strong. We care for you!
