Markus & his students

When we were volunteering at the women's shelter, we went to a nearby park and playground. The adult volunteers were in charge of watching the kids from the shelter and making sure they didn't wander off. There were 13 kids in total and the park was packed full of other children and families. It was a bit difficult, but it was fun running around keeping track of them.

I ran off to the bathroom and when I came back, I saw Markus playing with three adorable little girls. I thought that they were from the shelter and I was so excited to see them jumping all over him. When I walked closer, I realized those girls weren't from the shelter. I freaked out a little and I said, "Markus! Those aren't our kids." He responded, "I know, these are my students from school." 


His three students were so adorable. I could tell from their faces that they love and adore him. They were jumping all over him and hugging him. They kept yelling his name when they did anything because they wanted him to see what they were doing. It was the cutest thing. 

It's not very often that I get to see Markus interact with his students or kids in general. Seeing him playing and interacting with these girls, in that moment, I knew he's going to be an amazing father. I always thought he would be a great dad, but seeing him with his students, made me yearn for the day that I'll see Markus playing with our own kids.  Until then, we'll both enjoy our time with adorable Korean kids.
