Mom Refuses To Give Up Her Disabled Baby With “Low Intelligence,” Nurtures Him All The Way To Harvard

A man who was born disabled in central China has defied expectations by being admitted to the elite Harvard University in the United States

Ding nearly suffocated during a birth complication in 1988, leaving him with cerebral palsy.Doctors in her native Hubei province encouraged her to give him up, a view that even her own husband shared, as they believed it was worthless trying to rescue him as he would grow up either disabled or with low intelligence.Zou, however, rejected their claims, divorced her child’s father, and made it her life mission to treat and support her baby boy when no one else would.

To support the family and provide treatment for her son, Zou worked at least 3 jobs simultaneously including protocol training and insurance sales, and played brain-boosting games with her son to stimulate his senses and build the foundations of his intelligence.

The mother also insisted from the start that her son would learn to overcome his disabilities as far as possible. For example, Ding had problems coordinating his hand movements, and found if difficult to use chopsticks. so she taught him how to use chopsticks when his stiff hands could barely grip them.While many relatives said it was perfectly understandable that Ding did not use chopsticks while eating, Zou insisted on training him to do so,I didn’t want him to feel ashamed about this physical problems,” she said. “Because he had inferior abilities in many areas, I was quite strict on him to work hard to catch up where he had difficulties.”

29 years later, that same boy – Ding Ding – is a Peking University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences and engineering. As of recently, he’s also a Harvard Law student.

Ding Ding attributed his success in his academic studies as well as overcoming many of his physical handicaps to his mother’s persistence and endless devotion.We can only imagine how proud this hard-working mom is of her son’s incredible progress.
