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.

Ive been watching Malcolm in the Middle a lot lately, and I have to say tumblr does not make a big enough deal about this show. Just off the top of my head I can think of:
-The episode where Malcolm becomes editor of the school magazine, and fights to have a short story put in it about a girl who gets cat-called on her way to work so much, that she learns to tune it out, so she doesn’t notice when someone yells HEY at her one day, before she gets hit by a car. Despite the paper being deemed inappropriate by school officials.
-The episode where he doesn’t have sex with a drunk girl, who he likes, and exhibits behavior of liking him even while sober. (The best part of that episode was how the plot doesn’t revolve around that being some bold move, just the obvious thing to do.)
-The episode where Reese has a dream about some hot chick on a billboard, and she tells him he’s going to die alone because of the way he views women.
-The episode where he’s partnered with the popular girl in class, and is somewhat annoyed because he assumes she’s an idiot, but then she turns out to be a straight A student who loves both science and lip gloss.
The overall respect for Louis, the complexity of her character, and the fact that she’s not used as the butt of all the males’ jokes.
Now this shows not perfect, and could be easily picked apart for all the things “problematic” by anyone wants to see it as so, but it’s mostly Reese’s character (the second oldest, and worlds largest idiot) that portrays all the shitty political incorrectness, And I like that. I like that if anyone were to empathize with his ignorant perspective, you could always argue “yeah, but look who you’re fucking agreeing with.”
I don’t know man. I just really think we should talk about Malcolm in the Middle more often
Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
Gentlemen, I know this is a big concern for you. Protect yourselves.
