Zhong Kofu Ex-wife is a mentally disabled woman. She gave birth to Xiao in 2002, their son was different in his behavior, in comparison to other children. Xiao limited in what he could say and only stuck to using words such as ‘dad’ or ‘baba’. Throughout his short years, Xiao has been very aggressive with other children including his sister. While he would love to send his son to school to get an education and play with other children. He fear the kids would not accept his son. The Family need money Its this Father responsibility to provide. So that his son can be treated. We’re all disturbed by how this child is being treated.

This story is so sad. It is another reminder that financial resources are needed to properly care for, medicate and treat so many conditions. I hope this family is able to secure good treatment and resources for their son soon.
