Why do you have to go home and reunite during the Spring Festival? Most people, maybe not able to answer it at the moment.

However, the Chinese's attachment to the home has been deeply integrated into the blood and become an inescapable belief and obsession.

Thirty years ago, Hu Xiujuan’s mother took her to the market and never returned. She reported to the police that she had searched in Chongqing and Fujian and had no news. She thought that she would never find her daughter again in this life.

(at the age of) 8 months, still in the early stage of development, even the look of his mother is very vague. From her time of memory development (after infancy), Hu Xiujuan already had no impression of her mother. Her adoptive mother in Hebei died early. Since the time she started to understand things, she had lived with her adoptive father. Although she did not understand what it means to be “abducted”, she is very eager to have her own mother.

The 30-year search for a mother is quite a long time, and the story is a bit of twists and turns. With the help of the media and volunteers, she finally went home. She and her father cried together. This scene lasted nearly 10 minutes. Hu Xiujuan’s half-brother and sister are also with them. Friends, relatives, and media reporters at the scene, all witnessed this happy moment together.

Mengapa Anda harus pulang dan berkumpul kembali saat Festival Musim Semi? Kebanyakan orang, mungkin tidak bisa menjawabnya saat ini.

Namun, keterikatan orang Cina terhadap rumah telah sangat terintegrasi ke dalam darah dan menjadi keyakinan dan obsesi yang tak terhindarkan.

Tiga puluh tahun lalu, ibu dari Hu Xiujuan membawanya ke pasar dan tidak pernah kembali. Dia melapor ke polisi bahwa dia telah mencari di Chongqing dan Fujian dan tidak ada kabar sama sekali. Dia berpikir bahwa dia tidak akan pernah menemukan putrinya lagi dalam hidup ini.

(pada usia) 8 bulan, masih dalam tahap awal perkembangan, bahkan (ingatan akan) penampilan ibunya sangat kabur. Dari masa perkembangan ingatannya (setelah masa bayi), Hu Xiujuan sudah tidak memiliki kesan tentang ibunya. Ibu angkatnya di Hebei telah meninggal lebih awal. Sejak dia mulai mengerti banyak hal, dia telah tinggal bersama ayah angkatnya, meskipun dia tidak mengerti apa artinya "diculik", dia sangat ingin memiliki ibu sendiri.

Pencarian seorang ibu selama 30 tahun adalah waktu yang cukup lama, dan ceritanya sedikit berliku. Dengan bantuan media dan sukarelawan, dia akhirnya pulang. Dia dan ayahnya menangis bersama. Adegan ini berlangsung hampir 10 menit. Saudara tiri (laki-laki dan perempuan) Hu Xiujuan juga bersama mereka. Teman, saudara, dan wartawan media di tempat kejadian, semuanya menyaksikan saat bahagia ini bersama-sama.
