Title Lou Xiaoying
Description Alcohol Marker and Ink on Acrylic board. For the Imaginary Super Heroes Swap.

Lou Xiaoying and her husband made a living scavenging the trash for recyclables in their village of Jinhua, China. In 1974, she found a newborn baby girl left to die in the trash. This young girl was the first of many that owe their lives to this remarkable woman. Although they barely had enough to get by themselves, over the years the couple rescued over 30 babies from the trash, all victims of China's "1-Child" policy set in place to curb the country's population growth. The last baby she rescued was just after her 83rd birthday, well after her husband had passed away.
