ABC NEWS - Nov 15 - Parents in China are so worried about their children finding a spouse they often arrange blind dates or pressure their children to attend matchmaking events. But some parents are taking it to a new extreme. A baby matchmaking event was organized by BB Groupon, which sells baby care products. The matchmaker, Deng Peng, is the market manager of the website. "I'm very worried about my daughter being alone. We want to organize this event to offer a platform for babies to meet and play together. It is too early to talk about marriage, of course, but it would be a welcome miracle if they really got married one day," said Deng Peng. At the party, there were only 3 girls and 27 boys. The gender imbalance in China has soared since ultrasound technology became widely available in the 1980s and millions choose to abort baby girls in favor of having a son.
