Pang Qingjian: Foster Grandpa

Janitor saves six abandoned babies in ten years
Pang Qingjian, 68, saved six abandoned babies at the Qinglong Temple in the past 10 years. He adopted three of them and asked others to care for the other three, reported.

Pang first adopted a newborn baby girl, who was wrapped up in toilet paper and abandoned near the ticket office of the temple ten years ago.

The two other girls were picked up in 1997 and 2000 respectively near the temple. "The third child was the most miserable," Pang said. "Someone told me there was a baby abandoned in the dust heap. I rushed there to find the baby still alive and crying."

"The baby I picked up in 2000 was a boy, well-dressed as if his parents had abandoned him after dressing him up," Pang told Xinhua. He said he sent another abandoned baby to the local police station this March.
