Difficult trials were destined for baby Alba from her very birth.
As soon as the young mother saw the newborn girl, she had no doubt that she did not need such a child. Alba was born with Down syndrome and was doomed to orphanhood.
Later, she had at least twenty potential parents, but, in the end, none of them decided to connect life with a “special” baby.
But two years ago, Alba, nevertheless, acquired a family, albeit a little and not standard. 40-year-old Luca Trapanese has neither a family nor children. In Italy, the adoption of children by single-parent families is a complex process.
But social services met the desire of Luka, and he took the 13 days old baby home.
He may have been helped by his many years of experience in a special needs care center. This work taught him patience, empathy and the ability to communicate with sick people.
He went through many instances and interviews for the right to become a family for Alba. And for the past two years, the girl has been growing up in a happy family environment.
Luka brings her up alone, but hopes to meet someone who wants to share the joy of fatherhood with him. In the evenings, he enjoys the company of his cheerful baby, who loves to play and dance, and both feel happy.
