Still, there's something about this photo
(Photo via yesboleh.blogspot.com)that shows the power of Motherhood.
She has fed nine babies so far; five were orphans, four had Mother's who were too injured to nurse. Xiaojuan has a six-month baby of her own that she cannot nurse, as the child is staying with her relatives while she works in this disaster zone of the earthquake that has killed more than 51,000, with more than 29,000 people missing, according to government figures.
The media has fallen in love with Xiaojuan for her efforts. The pictures and video of her caring for these infants brings an image of peace and assurance that lies in direct contrast to much of the suffering that is the reality for so many people. I won't even touch the whole "Facebook banning breastfeeding photos," here or airline carriers who order people off planes because they nurse. This photo is simply beautiful, and a glowing testament to the power of love.
