"Elderly retired school teacher seeks family willing to adopt grandfather. Will pay."
Lonely Giorgio Angelozzi, 79, published his appeal in the classified pages of daily Corriere della Sera over the weekend, tugging on heart strings across family-loving Italy.
The classics teacher has lived alone outside Rome with seven cats since his wife died in 1992 but on Monday he had received dozens of replies from across the country.
Sad? Inspiring? Exciting? Joyful? All of these. I wonder if anyone was willing to adopt this gentleman without the $600 a month payment?
I wonder how many elderly, lonely and alone men and women in our own communities could be 'adopted' to the benefit of both the family and the elderly person. I don't mean taken into your home to live but occasionally invited to dinner, taken along on a family outing, share Thanksgiving, Christmas, send them a birthday card, take them to childs school program, etc.
Has anyone ever done this to any degree?
