Every person wants to have a beautiful house and a loving family. But unfortunately, not everybody even have a place to spend the night. There are a lot of homeless people all over the world. Despite various life problems, a lot of them are kind people with a big heart. The story that happened ten years ago in China is an excellent example that can prove this fact.
One day Xiong, a homeless man from China, was looking for plastic bottles in a trashcan. Soon he made a shocking discovery. He noticed a baby girl, wrapped in a blanket. She was there among trash. There was a note in the blanket that said: “Was born on October, 15,2007”. Xiong knew that he is the only hope for this baby girl. If he didn’t do anything, she would die.
Xiong made a decision to keep the girl and raise her as his child. He named her Yanyan. That was a very unexpected decision. For some time they lived together with Xiong’s wife. But soon they got divorced. He had to move under the bridge in Nanchang City along with his daughter.
Xiong dedicates his life to raising a girl. He says “No matter how hard it is, I intend to make sure that I raise her until she is old enough to stand on her own two feet.”
They spend a good time together. Yanyan loves Xiong and treats him like a father. They enjoy reading books under a street lamp. He also teaches her how to read, write and do basic arithmetic.
Every year on girl’s birthday Xiong makes her a special present. He uses the money he collects from selling bottles to get her picture. That is so touching.
We hope that this family will overcome all difficulties and get a place they can call home.
