There is a special family in Changchun, the capital city of China's Jilin province. In thisfamily, 15 adopted children live with their 36-year-old father, Haonan. Despite the heavyfinancial burden that comes with raising so many children, the warm-hearted man isunwavering in his committment to his family.

Haonan was an orphan himself, which made him sympathetic toward other young orphans.He once worked for a rich businessman in eastern China's Zhejiang province, who built ashelter for homeless children and the elderly. Inspired by this example, Haonan started hisown philanthropy work.

He adopted his first child, Longlong, in 2007 when he saw the boy collecting garbage at aconstruction site with grandfather. Haonan became Longlong's adoptive father afterearning the trust of Longlong's grandfather, who later left the child with Haonan.

All of Haonan's children were either homeless or come from impoverished families thatcouldn't support them. According to Haonan, what keeps him moving down his unusualpath is the happiness he feels when he's with the children.

At present, Haonan and his 15 children, aged from 7 to 17, live in an 80-square-meterapartment. Two volunteers teach the children, both having quit their previous jobs inorder to help. Tuition fees for all the children would be overwhelming for Haonan, whotakes care of the children during the day and works as a laborer at night. But his income isnot enough to cover the family's expenses, so charity and donations are essential for him toget by.

Haonan said the thing he is most proud of is his children's accomplishments at school.

Honestly,, I wonder: howcan a man with no higher education and thus no hope to earn a top income raise 125 minors from the meagre salary he makes as a night labourer?

Regardless of the man's kind motives, it does raise the question as to how he could qualify to legally adopt them.
(mostly harmless)
