These sisters arrived at the Baan Tharn Namchai orphanage in July 2010. Ton Hom was five and Ton Koa three and a half. Ton Koa weighed 9 kilos and Ton Hom weighed only 9.5 kilos. For 3 weeks the girls ate everything that was put in front of them and put on 1 kilo per week. They have now slowed down on the eating but are still healthy and gaining weight. The girls settled in very quickly and happily. They both have gorgeous smiles and a cheeky laugh, they also love to dance. They are bright little things and soak up every learning opportunity that comes their way.
