The Wider Image: China: when an only child dies
Huang Peiyao, 54, plays with her adopted daughter in a room that was used by her dead son, while a suitcase containing a picture of her son is seen in another room, during an interview in her house in Zhangjiakou, China, November 22, 2015. Huang's son Yu Jie was born in 1985 and died in a car accident in 2011. In the factory where she worked, inspectors monitored women's pregnancies closely. She had an abortion after falling pregnant for a second time. Following her son's death, she adopted a girl to help overcome the sorrow and find new hope. The adoption barred her from government financial aid for parents who had lost an only child. Now retired, she lives on a pension and does part-time manual jobs to raise her adopted daughter. She urges the government to give her access to financial support. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon PICTURE 4 OF 18 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "CHINA: WHEN AN ONLY CHILD DIES" SEARCH "KIM ONE CHILD" FOR ALL IMAGES
