A pair of twins with brain paralysis did not give in to fate but rather found their own way to live a good life, reported Liaoshen Evening News.
Tian Lulu and Tian Xiaolu, born in 1991, live in Dandong, Northeast China's Liaoning province. Their parents are deaf-mutes. To make the family's conditions worse, the twins were found to he brain paralysis after birth.
Last year, their father – the backbone of the family – died of cancer. Even while dealing with this hardship, the twins refused donations from kind-hearted people and struggled to support themselves and their mother on their own.
The twins and their mother share a one-bedroom house. The house has poor lighting and old, fading furniture. The only appliance in the room is a TV set, which was left by the twins' grandfather.
Though a small house, it is kept tidy and clean.
Tian Lulu, the elder sister, sits on the bed. When the phone rings, she supports her body with her right hand, and uses her finger to reply to a message on WeChat with difficulty.
Lulu is "luckier" than her younger sister because her left index finger and middle finger can move flexibly and she is the only person in the family who can speak.
She is a good typist. At the end of the sentence, she even adds an emoji. "That's the new skill I got," Lulu says with a laugh.
At the same time, her younger sister Tian Xiaolu, sits on a wheelchair at the bedside, her arms and legs tied up to the wheelchair to keep her steady and prevent her from hurting herself as she cannot control her body like normal people.
Xiaolu wears a special device on her head. It is an empty pen that contains a stylus, which is linked with a piece of rubber band and tied up with her hair band. With the device, Xiaolu is able to type words on a mobile phone more comfortably than using her nose as she used to.
The twins he been supporting the family by selling soap and other women's products on WeChat for nearly a year.
Although many kind-hearted people offered to help the family since the death of their father, they politely declined because they thought their father would not like to see them living on other people's kindness.
"When father was alive, we did not make him feel proud. Now he has passed away, we will try to live a decent life and let him rest in peace," said Lulu.
But doing business is not easy, especially for disabled people. During the first few months after opening their business, not a single product had been sold, which caused Lulu anxiety. To comfort her sister, Xiaolu would use her chin to rub her head.
Thanks to their patience and sincerity, more and more customers bought products from their platform. The twins could finally provide for the family, even with some difficulty.
People who knew the twin sisters might wonder why they always smile considering all the hardships they he faced in life.
Lulu said that when she and her younger sister were children, they often realized people stared at them in a strange way. For a period of time, she did not dare to look into other people's eyes. She asked her mother what made them different?
Her mother told her that they were just like other children except that they were not as healthy, and that there were more good people in the world and not everyone looked at them with malice. The mother also said that as long as they were mentally healthy, they were no different from normal people.
With encouragement from her mother, Lulu overcame the mental obstacle, and started smiling and nodding at people. And she found it worked: people were more likely to talk with her and look at her with kindness.
Despite the difficulties she met, Lulu said the family can now live on their own and she hoped, through their efforts, the twins could make their mother live a better life.
