day 5 - jung-hee

{practice project. day 5 - jung-hee}
I started volunteering with her in June 2011 here in Korea. She had been living at the orphanage since she was 2 or 3. I tried to meet with her every week to study English and be a good friend to her. 3 weeks ago she actually moved out and is now living with her dad again. I wasn't sure if I'd see her again since she left the orphanage. BUT she called me and we met up on Sunday. I'm really thankful for her. Though I was warned that she'd be a difficult girl, she turned out to be a blessing and joy. I'm surprised she allowed me into her life. Through her I've learned the importance of patience, commitment and how the life I live is not always about me.
