....they cried a bit, and maybe angry too.

I would like to ask, if there is maybe an article, story, something - that would give them the ability to understand this and find peace with this, something that would help them to see and find peace with my choice.

Hello again Valujira,

I suggest you ask your question at Dhamma Wheel website where a few of the members are monks themselves.

They have a section at the website called "Ordination and Monastic Life"

There's a thread at the beginning of that section which you might find useful, as you've never actually been to Thailand yet, or talked to any monks .....its called "Ordination in Thailand"

Kind regards,
