What would you have done if you saw a crying, abandoned child dumped at a place near your home? While others would most likely take it to the authorities, there are a few people who could say that they would adopt it. But a poor woman from Anqing, China surprised us all when she decided to care for the discarded infant even without any money to spare.
This woman came upon this surprising situation by accident but immediately made a life decision. As soon as she looked into the eyes of this child, she already fell in love. So, the Chinese native took the baby home to the small hut she shares with her husband.
Sadly, things got more difficult when her partner died. All of the important responsibilities was placed on her shoulder but the woman persevered for the sake of the little girl she had at home. The woman took jobs taking care of recyclable materials and selling vegetables in order to provide for her adoptive daughter’s education. It was very difficult but the reward she would receive for her kind actions would be great.
Fast forward to the time that her daughter grew up to be a happy and successful woman with a family of her own. Never forgetting about the poor woman who gave her the best life she could possibly have, the daughter had a two-storey house built for her mother.
She said that the original hut they shared before was too small and decrepit to be habitable so it was only right to give her mother a proper house. This grateful child would also visit the old woman often and said a few inspiring words about her duty as a child.
“When I was a child, my mother took a good care of me. Now, it is time for to take a good care of her. This is my duty as a child.“
