The Chiang Rai Run

Stephen Kleinjung Thailand 4 Comments

Valor is here. I know…. We were shocked too. The actual pushing portion of his birth was ultra-fast (like so fast I wasn’t even there), but the whole story is far more epic than the push. Did you really expect anything else from The Kleinjungs? Any of you who have had children in recent years have heard of things called …
