After the earthquake had died away， when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young womans house， they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange as she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward， and her two hands were supported by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.
With so many difficulties， the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the womans body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However， the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.
He， together with the rest of the team left this house and was going to search the next collapsed building. For some reasons， the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruined house of the dead woman. Again， he knelt down and used his hand through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly， he screamed with excitement， “A child！There is a child！”
The whole team worked together. Carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3?month?old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mothers dead body. Obviously， the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house was falling， she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping peacefully when the team leader picked him up.
The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket， he saw a cellphone inside the blanket. There was a text written on the screen. It said， “If you can survive， you must remember that I love you.” This cellphone was passed around from one hand to another. Everybody that read the message wept. “If you can survive， you must remember that I love you.”
