Anna Wang from southwestern China is the only caretaker of her sick grandmother and 92-year-old great-grandmother.
This girl was not given a normal childhood and ordinary classes for five-year olds. The first misfortune for Anna’s family took place when the girl was only three months old. One day someone knocked on the Wang’s door. Strangers took the little girl’s father. Mr. Wang never returned. It turned out that he was sent to jail. Why? Nobody knew.
Shortly after the father of the family was taken, the mother of the girl got married again and left, leaving her own child. The girl was looked after by her grandmother and great-grandfather Anna at the beginning. But the roles quickly reversed. The little one’s grandmother’s health began to decline. Septic arthritis made it impossible for her to take care of herself and her family without help.
How did the girl take care of the older women? You will find the answer on the next page (there are lots of pictures).
