Li Lijuan, a 46-year-old Hebei woman, has adopted 72 children over the last 19 years. The woman, who was once married to a rich mine operator, has been alone ever since her husband became addicted to drugs and almost sold their only son. After the traumatic experience, she adopted a child, and hasn’t stopped since. She wakes ups 5am everyday to feed the children, and is busy taking them to school, running a small shoe stall, cooking and putting children to sleep, not usually getting into bed until after midnight. Netizens applauded the woman’s selflessness, and were surprised that it took 19 years for her story to be reported.
