Longwan Caring Home is located in Dahua County, which was listed as one of the poorest counties in Guangxi Province. Longwan Caring Home is a big family consisting of orphans, single parents, and abandoned children. The normal expenses of the Home are covered by plantations, breeding, and small businesses.
Zhen Ron’s grandfather and father died in 2012. His mother left home and has not come back. Zhen Ron had been living with his uncle. Unfortunately, his uncle’s wife left the family, so life became difficult for them.
In 2014, Zhen Ron’s uncle brought him to Longwan. The children who came around the same time as Zhen Ron were studying in the senior class, but Zhen Ron wanted to stay in the junior class. The teachers joked with him saying, “You should go to the senior class.” But he would respond, “I do not want to.”
Zhen Ron did not like speaking, but now he has become open and lively. He has learned to care for the younger children. He can wash himself clean before going to bed. Zhen Ron also likes toy cars and balls. When he's not happy, he closes his lips tightly. But the children who are older than him treat him patiently and comfort him if he is unhappy.
Zhen Ron’s uncle is trying his best to earn a living, especially since Zhen Ron’s father left debt when he died. His uncle takes Zhen Ron home during the winter and summer holidays. Zhen Ron always greets his uncle with the brightest smiles. He weeps sadly when he has to leave his uncle.
We are with Zhen Ron together to witness his growing-up.
