At present, medicine is able to not only easily determine the sex of the baby in early pregnancy, but it can also detect developmental abnormalities. However, in the case of congenital pathology, there are unfortunately few solutions. The mother of this little girl immediately refused to abandon her at birth because she had “Down syndrome”. No one wanted to take responsibility for this little girl, and more than 20 families rejected her.
Shortly after, a 41-year-old man named Luca Trapanese learned of her story. He dedicated his time as a volunteer to helping sick and homeless people. Alba’s illness did not discourage him, and he made the decision to adopt this girl and give her a fulfilling life.
However, when it came to formalizing the adoption process, Luca encountered some difficulties. Legislation required a complete family for adoption, while Luca lived alone. Moreover, his own personal orientation did not correspond to traditional norms. Nevertheless, he persevered and succeeded in achieving his goal. Luca shared that from the first moment he held the little girl in his arms, he felt a special connection with her.
Two years have passed since the guardianship was established, and today Alba is a fulfilled and happy young girl. Her adoptive father declares that she has become his whole world and that he can no longer imagine his life without her. The photos bear witness to the precious time the father spends with his daughter, revealing the sincere love and care he gives her.
What is your perception of such situations? Would you have considered caring for a child in a similar situation?
