When Li Yong took the train to the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, more than 1,500 kilometers away from his hometown — Liyang, Jiangsu province, he was just 2 years old.

He was among about 3,000 children from the southern China, who were adopted by herdsmen in the late 1950s, when the country was hit by natural disasters and the government of Inner Mongolia took the initiative to take care of these children.
