Self-deprecating in appearance is only 1m27 tall, but Xuan is very lucky to meet an American husband who loves her dearly.
According to information on Thanh Nien, Ms. Khanh Xuan (born in 1981, from Dong Nai) was born unlucky when she had an umbilical infection and had to take many drugs. Besides, because of the poor family’s lack of food, she suffered from rickets. By adulthood, Xuan is only 1m27 tall and weighs 27kg.
However, the harsh circumstances nourished the will of the disabled girl. From a young age, Ms. Xuan studied very hard, considering it the only way to get a future. After graduating from university, Ms. Xuan struggled to make a living in the middle of magnificent Saigon, living in a small motel room with a salary of three bucks and three dong. Always worried about doing business but not seeing any surplus, looking back, friends of the same age are all married, even becoming mothers, but she dare not dream anything because she is always self-deprecating about her appearance.
Towards the end of 2013, a friend introduced her to post an advertisement for an American car shop owner named Freddie Scott, born in 1963. Because they work online, they both have to text back and forth often, initially, The two only talked about work, but gradually mentioned side stories and developed feelings when it was not good. In particular, when Freddie asked for love, Xuan thought that the other party was just joking or had no good intentions because he had heard of many online love scams.
That’s why she ignored it, every time the other person mentioned a love story, she would either keep quiet or change the subject immediately. However, when listening to him talk about the past, about the broken marriage and the pain of watching the only child leave, she felt the sincerity and seriousness of opening her heart. On May 11, 2014, Freddie flew back to Vietnam from the US to meet Ms. Xuan. As soon as they met at the airport, he walked up to her and hugged her, calling her “wife” out loud. At that moment, all of Ms. Xuan’s guilt and inferiority disappeared, leaving behind an indescribable happiness. Not long after that, the couple officially became husband and wife and went to America together.
The couple held a wedding ceremony in Vietnam in the blessing of many people. The idea that her body is small, her husband is old, and it is difficult to have children, but only 5 months after marriage, Xuan happily received the news that she became a mother and was still a twin. Her pregnancy journey faced many difficulties, when in the first 4 months, she could not eat or drink, while in the last months she was so tired that she used a wheelchair. Every two weeks, she had to go to the doctor for an ultrasound.
Despite living in a foreign country, with different cultures and languages, Xuan always has her husband by her side to encourage and share. No matter how busy Freddie was, he also took care of everything in the house from cleaning, cooking to washing, washing dishes. When his wife craved Vietnamese food, he immediately ran to buy it even though the place was ten kilometers away from home. In the morning, he would remind his wife to drink milk, and at night, he would voluntarily massage his hands, feet or even his back.
The closer she is to each other, the deeper her feelings for her husband are. His sincerity, kindness and sense of responsibility helped her realize that her decision to follow her husband to the West was absolutely correct. The story of Ms. Xuan and her husband West makes many people believe that in this world, fairy tales still exist in everyday life and as long as there is love, everything else is meaningless.
