(Clearwisdom.net) Ren Yuan, born on August 28, 1989, is now in his third year of junior high school at the Jiangcheng Middle School, Jilin City, Jilin Province.

Ren Yuan's mother Wu Lingxia was a practitioner from Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province. She was illegally imprisoned and suffered brutal persecution at the Shuangya City Detention Center and the Jiamusi City Labor Camp. Due to mental and physical torture, she died on July 27, 2002. She was 37 years old and Ren Yuan was only 13 years old. (For more details and photos, see http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2002/8/19/25490.html)

Ms. Wu Lingxia had worked at Jilin Province's Jilin City Paper Factory, and because this unit couldn't keep up its production, staff and workers were laid off and she lost her job. Since July 20, 1999 when the persecution against Falun Dafa began, Ms. Wu twice went to Beijing to validate Dafa. She was arrested and suffered serious mental and physical persecution. This also resulted in great financial losses for the family. Her husband, who is not a practitioner, could not bear the persecution and gave in to the pressure by the authorities to divorce her.

In the fall 2000, Ms. Wu Lingxia went alone to her parents' home in Shuangyashan City. Half a year later, Ms. Wu brought her son Ren Yuan to live with her. Ren Yuan transferred schools to Shuanyashan City No. 26 Middle School, where he excelled in his studies. In autumn of 2001, Ren Yuan transferred to Ganglian Zidi School, which is near his grandmother's home, and he was the top student in his class. Six months later, due to the torture she suffered in the labor camp, Ms. Wu had a terrible accumulation of fluid in her liver and abdominal cavity and could no longer take care of herself in daily life, so she had to let Ren Yuan transfer back to study in Jilin and live with his father.

Ren Yuan's father Ren Shouchun used to work at the Jilin Province Jilin City Paint Company, and now earns his living in Guangzhou.
