Six-Year-Old Girl Takes Care Of Paralyzed Father After Her Mother Abandoned Them.
When she returns, she feeds her father and helps him move around the house.
Thankfully, they have built a home-made mobility hoist that holds his weight while he moves from the bed to his wheelchair, so he's still able to remain mobile. Still, Jia Jia's dad needs constant help, so when she's in school, her grandparents, who are both farmers, take care of her dad.
But if you ask Jia Jia if she's tired of running the household all by herself, she has a clear answer.
A Yangtzi Evening News reporter asked the little girl if she felt overwhelmed by doing so much at home. "Looking after my dad, I don't feel tired at all," she responded. But even though she seems to be handling the situation like a pro, it wasn't easy at first.
The accident pretty much caught them off-guard and things got complicated a few months later.
40-year-old Tian Haicheng was riding inside a taxi in March 2016, when the cab crashed into a ditch at full speed. Two months after the horrific accident left him paralyzed, Jia Jia's mother and his wife of seven years decided to abandon them. She even took his eldest son with her. "She told me on the day that she was going to stay in her mother's home for a few days. But she never returned, and she took our son with her," said Haicheng. Despite the tragedies this father and daughter had gone through, they're still glad to be in each other's life.
