This story is proof positive that parents never give up on their children.
In 1997, Guo Gangtang’s 2-year-old son was abducted while playing near the front gate of his home in China.
According to ABC, “Abductions of children for sale are reported regularly in China … The problem is aggravated by restrictions that until 2015 allowed most urban couples only one child. Boys are sold to couples who want a son to look after them in old age.”
According to police, traffickers kidnapped Guo’s son and sold him to a couple in central China.
Guo, who was 27 at the time of his son’s abduction, set off on a mission to find him — and he was willing to dedicate the rest of his life to the search.
Over the years, Guo even became an advocate for other parents of missing children.
Now Guo’s long-lost son has finally been found — and it’s a reunion you don’t want to miss.
