Xia Caihong, director of the Department on Children's Affairs at Henan Women's Federation, led crew members from Henan Television to cover the stories of rural "left-behind" children (those whose parents have left them to find work in far-off cities) in Tongxv County, central China's Henan Province, on May 18-20.

During their three-day tour, Xia and local provincial television staff captured the lives of local children and their longing for parental care on the occasion of International Children's Day (June 1st).

A little boy from an activity center there wrote that he wanted to celebrate the special occasion with his parents if they did come back, when a voluntary teacher gave him and other children an assignment entitled What Kinds of Presents I Want Most During International Children's Day.

To help the boy realize his dream and reunite with his parents, the voluntary teacher included his writing into a letter sent to his parents.

Several days later, the boy became nervous when visiting volunteers presented gifts to him and his peers. However, he burst into tears of surprise when his parents appeared in front of him.

According to Henan Women's Federation, its shoot based on rural "left-behind" children in Tongxv would be produced into a publicity film titled Let Love Go Home and broadcast on TV ahead of International Children's Day.
