They've all grown up and achieved their goals now. Meng Xuanren, 22, is a sophomore at the Liaoning Provincial College of Communications, and Xuantai, 19, works at an auto repair factory in south China's Guangdong Province after graduating from a vocational school.

The brothers returned to Nongding Village in Bansheng Town for a family reunion during the Spring Festival. They have seen the transformation of transportation infrastructure, school facilities, and village housing in their hometown over the last decade.
