This is a heartbreaking story of a mum who truly believed in her child despite what everyone said. Her whole life she fought and did everything to make her child happy and successful. For all the mum out there, the mum of this story is a real role model for everyone.
Her name is Zou Hongyan and when she welcomed her only son to the world in 1988, terrible birth complications left him disabled for life. He had cerebral palsy so doctors in her town encouraged her to give him up. Her husband agreed with the doctors and they all believed he would have had a miserable life.
Zou, however, rejected their opinion, divorced her husband and literally made it her life mission to treat and support her baby boy. Her husband disowned the boy, so she decided to raise their son, Ding Ding, all by herself. Throughout those very tough years, she worked at least 3 jobs to support and get treatment for her son. What is extremely amazing is that her hard work has paid off: She’s now the proud mom of a 29-year-old Harvard student.
