Wu Fangcao's husband and in-laws urged her to enroll in supplementary school so that she could attend Chinese classes at night to help her become more used to living in Taiwan early. In order to get to know Wu Fangcao better, they would also urge her to take part in events sponsored by National Immigration Agency or neighborhood organizations.

After three years of marriage, Wu Fangcao (武芳草) was pregnant with her first child. Her devoted mother-in-law required surgery because of her ill health throughout her pregnancy.
