Drolma: story of an angel with broken wings

"She is smart. She knows everything," said Lhadron, the twenty-five-year-old mother. Drolma heard mom's voice, looking at her and giving her a smile.

Her innocent eyes are trying to tell what she's got from the world. She is only five years old, but mentally challenged from cerebral palsy.

"My baby was born in an oxygen deficiency state. We found she was different from other children when she was one years old," Lhadron was sad.

Every time when the mother goes to the hospital, she would stand in front of the baby-care room for a while. Through the window, she likes to see those healthy babies smiling at her.

"I always thought if the medical conditions were as good as now, my babe would have been normal just like others," Lhadron's eyes got wet.

Again Drolma heard her mother's sad voice, and she began to cry and move in her wheelchair.

"It doesn't matter, my girl," Tsultrim, the thirty-eight-year-old father kissed Drolma on her forehead.

When the parents were aware of Drolma's conditions, they never stopped going to hospitals in different places – the Bayi Township, Shangri-la, Lhasa and other places. They had spent over 80,000 yuan on Drolma's treatment, with another 50,000 yuan borrowed from their friends and relatives.

"Yet we saw little improvement in her conditions after several treatments. At last, I turned to Secretary Zhang (Party Secretary of the Tibet Autonomous Regional Party Committee)," the mother recalled.

Last November, Lhadron heard that Zhang would come to Nyingchi, so she held the little girl to find him. Secretary Zhang was very concerned about this family and asked the local aid-Tibet fellows from Guangdong for help.

At the end of the month, Drolma and her mother accompanied by three officials were arranged to fly to Guangzhou. The No.2 People's Hospital received them warmly. And over ten medical experts there carefully made a rehabilitation plan for Drolma.
