Sichuan TV reports of a helpless 19 year old girl by the name of Yan Chunyan in Wenzhou that has gone on the streets on the search for a kind hearted soul who will adopt her baby. The 21 year-old man with whom she had been living together for over two years and who fathered her child has disappeared, and without a job, she simply doesn’t know what to do. When asked why she wanted a baby at such a young age, she explained:
He said this was the Year of the Golden Pig, and he wanted a baby to be born in the Year of the Golden Pig, and that he didn’t want to miss this chance… I told him to wait a few years, but he said he would have to wait another 60 years for a Golden Pig baby and begged and pleaded with me. [Translation by Shanghaiist]
But now with her man gone and even his father too (their house is now padlocked), and with all of her phone-calls to him unanswered, Yan is now looking to give away her baby:
I am just looking for some kind-hearted soul to please adopt my baby. I am not asking for much. Just allow me to see him once a year and I will be more than satisfied.
And how did this girl meet that brute, you ask? On an Internet chatroom! Do we need any more proof that the Internet is changing the lives of ordinary Chinese citizens?
