The truly inspiring story of the Chinese rubbish collector who saved and raised THIRTY babies abandoned at the roadside

A woman has been hailed a hero after details of her astonishing work with abandoned children has emerged.

Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering from kidney failure, found and raised more than 30 abandoned Chinese babies from the streets of Jinhua, in the eastern Zhejiang province where she managed to make a living by recycling rubbish.

She and her late husband Li Zin, who died 17 years ago, kept four of the children and passed the others onto friends and family to start new lives.

Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found in a dustbin by Lou when she was 82.

‘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 so needy. I had to take him home with me,’ she said.

Why doesn’t this have more notes?
This woman is nothing short of an angel.

She has so little and gives so much, and organizations such as the government and school systems won’t do anything for this cause.
I am at loss of words at this lady’s sacrifice.

Awww guardian angel

Weekend fun with my loves. B was in heaven at the Wetlands Festival. He spent the majority of his time holding snakes and petting them. B has been so sweet with his little brother. I love the age difference between them. It’s so precious to watch.

You have a baby. From 2004 to 2010, cost of childbirth rose by 50%. Average out of pocket costs: $3400. That’s with insurance. Most pay more. Now you decide whether to work. Average cost of daycare is $11,666 per year. You have two kids, pay more for childcare than average rent.

And I mean, my Monday isn’t so bad either!

And I mean, my Monday isn’t so bad either!

Such a wonderful weekend with my little family and the weather was wonderful. Met up with old friends, Candler Park Fall Fest, snuggles, and of course, ninjas.

You’ll never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet, pay attention. Enjoy today mama, it’ll be over before you know it.
