Shouldn't it be "sxiaj" and not "siaj"?

No, if it was ŝiaj it would imply she wants to send the letter to someone else's parents.

She (Alice) wants to send a letter to her (Amandas) parents.

vs

She (Alice) wants to send a letter to her (own) parents.

So, can "sia" be used with "li" and "ili" as well?

It's more specific than that. It's more like saying "Su proprio" or "sus propios"

And "She wants to send a letter to her own parents." is also accepted by Duolingo for this sentence.

Wait...how would you say "my own," "his own," "our own," etc?
