After being apart for thirty years, a guy called Li Jingwei and his family got together again for a highly emotional occasion.
Because the map he recalled from his boyhood was so clear in his mind, he was able to sketch the precise location in China where he and his family had resided. When he was just four years old, he was taken advantage of by a network that exploited children.
Li stated that he had drawn his childhood house several times until all of the vivid recollections came flooding back. In spite of the fact that he could not recall the name of his hometown or his location, he was able to draw some aspects of his childhood home, such as a school, a bamboo grove, and a pond.
The good news is that a police officer came upon the image online by accident and matched it to a map of Yunnan, where he had just learned that a mother was looking for her missing kid.
On the other hand, the family who adopted Li cared for him and brought him up in the right way as they implanted in him extremely excellent life ideas, such as “learn well, and become an asset in the future,” and they encouraged him to do so.
He got motivation to look for his family in the story of Guo Gangtang, who rode his motorcycle over a distance of more than 300,000 miles while searching for his lost son. This story motivated him to look for his own family.
“After I watched the tale of Guo Gangtang, I couldn’t help but think to myself, ‘I really need to make an effort to locate my original parents as I wanted to visit them while they are still living.
There were 33 years of waiting, endless nights of longing, and ultimately a map hand-drawn from memory.
I want to express my gratitude to everyone who was instrumental in facilitating my reunion with my family.”
