Matchmaking couples by foot

Zhao Dongmei, an Internet writer chats with people online who consult with her for love and marriage guidance at her home in Harbin, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, on Aug 10. The 49-year-old woman was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of five, meaning she was unable to take care of herself. She studied Chinese and computer skills by herself and then she began to publish a lot of her work on the Internet by typing with her feet. In 2004, she posted a marriage seeking advertisement on her blog and website, leading Bate, a man from Inner Mongolia into her life. Bate has a problem with his right leg, the couple fell in love and married the following year. Now together they have built a matchmaking website specifically aimed at disabled people. They have helped to matchmake more than 10 couples, that are now married. [Photo/Xinhua]
