Chinese couple advertise for elderly couple as parents

A 30-year-old woman named Dong Ni in Danyang, Jiangsu Province and her husband are advertising for an elderly couple to live with them as "parents" following the death of the husband's parents in 2004.

Her parents are too old and set in their ways to relocate to Danyang, Dong said. A healthy and childless elderly couple would be a blessing for their home and for their young daughter as grandparents.

"I want the chance to be filial and to have a truly happy family," she said, though so far the family has found no takers.
