(Minghui.org) After my marriage failed, I moved to a different city with my son. Although I worked hard and became a successful magazine editor, I still yearned for love and a family.

In this strange city I ran into someone I knew, a man who I had gone to middle school with 20 years ago. When we first got re-acquainted, he told me that he was a Falun Gong practitioner and about how he had been persecuted. I didn’t fully understand Falun Gong. In China, Falun Gong in many people’s eyes is “extremely dangerous.” I even worried about him and being with him.

After interacting with him for a while, however, I learned the truth, but I still couldn’t understand why the government would lie and persecute these people for their belief.

His mother had cancer, and he took great care of her. I also got confirmation from his mother that there was nothing wrong with practicing Falun Gong.

He seemed to be very wise. Every time I had trouble, I could always go to him for moral support and advice. When two people get together, he told me, the most important thing is to be responsible for each other. He also said that practitioners shouldn’t have affairs. I felt so fortunate to have met such a great person.

Just as I was planning for our future, I had a stroke. He did not abandon me and took such good care of me in the hospital day and night. When he got tired, he just took a quick nap right next to my bed. When I had a headache and could not sleep at night, he pushed me in my wheelchair to the end of the hallway so that we could look at the sky and wait for dawn together. The doctors and nurses were so moved when they learned that we weren’t even husband and wife.

My mother came to visit me and warned me about him being a practitioner. She also worried that I wouldn’t be able of take care of my son, and advised me to send him to my ex-husband. This man instead assured me, “If you want to raise the child yourself, I support you. Let’s raise him together.”

Afterward, I asked him how he could stay so calm in that situation. He said, “I never thought you would have any true issues. Since I promised to be with you, I needed to assume that responsibility.”

After facing that near death experience when I had the stroke, I truly saw how great a Falun Gong practitioner is! I was determined to marry him!

During my recovery period after the surgery, headaches made me restless. He brought me Master Li Hongzhi’s audio lectures and said, “It will work if you believe it. Master will purify your body.” Master’s voice was so soothing that I fell asleep immediately. Now I know that Master was purifying my body.

That was when I began to practice Dafa and have experienced many miracles since. I recovered rapidly and went back to work shortly after. In the past eight years, I have never taken any medicine.

We did, indeed, get married. We study the Fa, do the exercises, send forth righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth together.
