My Mother Is My Feet

Deng Yan, a 15-year-old girl living in Xiatangzhang village, Xiangshui town, Pan County of Guizhou province, has suffered congenital dwarfism when she was three years old and now is less than 70 cm tall. Her mother, Ao Xue Gui has been carrying her to school on foot with 4 km mountain road for nine years like one day. She has told the world with her own actions that she is a qualified good mother.
