A parent’s devotion to their children can sometimes be one of the strongest natural forces in the world, and Yu Xukang, a proud and loving father in Yibin county in China, is no exception. Every day, he travels a total of 18 miles to ensure that Xiao Qiang, his disabled 12-year-old son, can go to school.
Qiang cannot make the trip himself because his legs and arms are twisted
That’s why Xukang wakes up at 5 AM every dy to carry his son for a total of 18 miles to and from school
“Despite being 12 he’s just 90 cm tall. I know that my son is physically disabled but there is nothing wrong with his mind.”
“I am proud of the fact that he is already top of his class and I know he will achieve great things. My dream is that he will go to college.”
