Adoptee Teaches Dreams, Not Just English

June 2, 2009

The good people who give something back to a community are considered angels. What makes them so good is they bestow tangible gifts and fill people’s hearts with hope.

Chunga is on Gadeok Island, 20 minutes sailing south of Busan. In one classroom, 13 third- and fourth-graders are focused on pictures shown on cards. Upon seeing a picture of a pilot, students immediately shout “airplane man” together. 

“Very good! But we call him a pilot,” says McGrath.
