President for Life Mr Xi Jinping could have easily started a war if he wanted to today, the Chinese would not have cared as the whole country wept for the feel-good story that everyone in ‘the Middle Kingdom’ had been hoping for would one day happen, finally took place.

Mr Wang Mingqing and his wife Ms Liu Dengying had lost their 3-year-old daughter some 24 years ago working as fruit sellers in the south-western city of Chengdu. One day after they had finished serving customers at their roadside stall in the south-western city, they suddenly realized that their little girl Qifeng was no longer by their side and started a desperate search.

After years of tireless searching, Mr Mingqing gave up his job as a fruit seller and became a taxi driver, hoping that he would pick her up as a passenger one day, explaining his story to everyone who drove in his taxi and handing out pictures.

Two years ago, he drove a government official around who spread his tearful tale to a newspaper. Ever since then the tragic story of the missing Mingqing daughter became a national obsession.

Until yesterday that is when, thanks to government officials who had shared the story on social media, his daughter was found and mother and father were tearfully reunited with their long-lost daughter. At the tearful reunion, Mr Mingqing hugged her and said: "Daddy loves you."

"From now on, Dad is here, you don't need to worry about anything, Dad will help you."

Probably found her working in a karaoke joint with people telling her she didn't have a mother. It seems crazy to me that China weeps about this? 20 years ago parents sold their daughters to karaoke bars and the somewhat attractive ones were put into the "comfort" business. Hopefully it's changing for the young generations.
