Quiet things no one ever knows

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

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.

I am at loss of words at this lady’s sacrifice.
