Lou Xiaoying, an 88-year-old rubbish collector from China adopted 30 infants who were left and abandoned in the streets of Jinhua in China. Along with her husband, they raised four of the orphans and some were given out to kind-hearted families who are willing to adopt.
She found the first baby girl back in 1972 while she was collecting garbage. She found the baby girl lying on the street and might have died if Xiaoying had not saved her.
“Even though I was already getting old, I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash. He looked so sweet and needy. I had to take him home with me.”
Now, Lou is bedridden in a hospital due to kidney failure and her health is deteriorating as time goes by.
She is considered a heroine after her story went viral on social media.
