"A Chinese woman with no legs who taught herself to walk on two stools has brought up more than 130 orphaned children. Xu Yuehua, 55, lost her legs at the age of 12 when she was hit by a train while gathering coal by the railway. ... Over the past 37 years, Xu has worn out more than 40 stools, and brought up more than 130 orphans, who all call her Big Mum." (12/21/10)
