    Reported by:

    Two years ago, father used gasoline to burn their house in a moment of anger. The pitiable girl (Mai Dieu) suffered severe burns, approximately 60%. Doctors were forced to cut her legs to save her life. Because of her appearance, she is quite worried and frightened when she go to school. Thanks to her teacher love and her friends encouragement, she can communicate with her friends easily and expansively. In her opinion, teacher is not only the second mother, but also the biggest love of her life

    Thank you so much for sharing this powerful story about Mai Dieu. Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed caption that provides me the necessary information to understand and care about this moment you photographed. I feel what you wrote in your image: "In her opinion, [her] teacher is not only the second mother, but also the biggest gift of her life."
