Born in 1979, Li Kewen majored in computer science at Peking University, one of the best universities in China. As a college junior, the brilliant young man founded his own company , which even attracted a foreign investor. Just as his career was about to take off, he died of a kidney disease in 2004 at age 24.

For the first two years after Li's death, his mother Li A’di could not accept the loss and cried all day. She also had countless sleepless nights. Almost 10 years after Li's death, his parents still keep his room as he left it. A decade, the couple says, cannot dull the pain of losing a child. It is a nightmare that lasts forever.

Parents who have lost their only child experience anguish that can border on mental illness. They feel empty and devoid of hope.
