"Am", 25 years old reunited with his father which he had not seen for 15 years.
He ran away from home when he was 10 because he wanted to play with his friend.
This friend abandoned him later on, which left him homeless and alone.
He could not return home for he only know his name is Am.
Even his home address is unknown to him.
The Mirror Foundation worked with the community in Bang Sue area and found Am’s father, Boontham Plaimoon, 54.
With the help of a foundation, he eventually found his father and got reunited.
It turns out that his father spent years waiting for his son to come home. He thanked the people who brought his son back to him.
“Sometimes when I was sick, I’d think of my grandmother because she used to take care of me,” Am spoke of his grandmother, who has now passed away.
“I’d like to apologize to my grandma for running away, for not taking care of her. I only wanted to play [with my friend]. I didn’t mean for this to happen,” the young man said.
