Luca and Alba inspire a lot of people. The Instagram account managed by an Italian father has a following of 360,000. Persons. why? Mostly, it records ordinary moments – games with your daughter, drawing together, family meetings or an event that has been important to many children in recent times, not just in Italy – back to schooling!
However, the story of Luca and Alba is very unusual and touching. The future father first saw Alba when she was only 13 days old. Due to Down syndrome, she was ready for adoption, but by the time Luca arrived, 20 families had said “no” – no one wanted a child with special needs. However, Luca did not hesitate – he wanted to become a father and give Alba a happy childhood.
The text continues below the video:
Adoption of children by homosexuals in Italy had been burdened with social taboos for years and legally impossible until 2017. Then, after changes in the law, individual adoption was permitted. Also at that time, the portal was opened to unmarried gay people, but Luca, due to his sexual orientation, heard this firsthand: if he wanted to adopt, he had to decide to have a sick child. This did not stop him.
The man has experience contacting children with special needs – he has worked for years as a volunteer for charitable organizations. The need to do good and help those whose fate turned out to be less kind was always close to him. The possibility of adopting a disabled girl was a great opportunity for him. As he later admitted to the media, when he first held Alba in his arms, he was overwhelmed with joy. He immediately felt that it was his daughter. When he was told that he could become her father, he cried with joy.
By adopting Alba, he not only created a happy home for the girl – the photos show just how amazing a girl’s development is – but also broke the stereotype about gay adoption of children. Every day Luca proves that he is a perfect parent, and that his daughter is the apple of his eye.
I am a father who dedicates every moment of his life to his young daughter: All my choices, actions and thoughts bear the name Alba and the goal: My daughter must be healthy and happy
– He recently wrote on Instagram.
Luca makes no secret that isolated parenthood can be difficult and it is not easy for Alba to be a mum and dad.
Someone told me my homosexuality makes me a “mother” – and that’s one of the many nonsense about gay people
– Notice. In another post, he noted that his happy relationship with Alba is part of the revolution taking place in the Italian mentality, and society is learning that a real family can be created by anyone who really wants to give their best. Too gay one.
