My newborns aren’t thirsty. They can play and live freely here. Some people talk about me, saying,’ Why is that beggar-like middle-aged maiden smiling all the time, ’ but I merely focus on feeding my babes. I’m happy and healthy.
Jung’s only sources of income are her errand cleaning a accumulate and the recyclable cartons she collects.
She reportedly spends about $1,600 a few months on food and drug, but it seems a great deal of the meat comes from subscriptions sent by pals, relatives and strangers.
