Back in 2017, Luca adopted baby girl Alba

Luca Trapanese – a 41-year-old single man from Italy – adopted Alba when she was merely 13 days old. The little girl has Down’s Syndrome and was given up for adoption by her mother because of it. It wasn’t easy to find a new family for baby Alba – 20 families rejected the newborn because of her condition. But fortunately, Luca turned up and Alba’s life changed forever.

Ever since Luca was 14, he had been working and volunteering for organizations focused on children with special needs. He also always wanted to become a father, however, this posed certain struggles, as he was (and still is) single. Fortunately, in 2017 he was finally given permission to adopt under one condition.

But Alba’s condition did not scare Luca away as he was determined to become a father

Luca himself had worked in care centers for people with special needs

Luca was told that he could only adopt a baby with special needs who had been previously rejected by traditional families. Luca was in 7th heaven – he knew he was finally bound to become a father, just like he always dreamed. “Since I was 14 years old, I have volunteered and worked with the disabled so I felt I had the right knowledge and experience to do it,” Luca told the media.

In July 2017, he got the call he was waiting for so long – it was the tribunal that informed him of a baby girl. Luca listened to her story and without any hesitation instantly said yes and rushed to the hospital to meet his daughter. “When I first held her in my arms, I was overcome with joy. I felt she was my daughter straight away,” Luca revealed.

“It was the first time I held a newborn baby. Before that moment, I had always been scared. But, when I first held Alba, I knew I was ready to be her dad,” said the young father.

Today, the man’s life revolves around Alba. He says that his daughter “revolutionized his life and everything revolves around her. She brought me happiness and a sense of fulfillment. I am proud to be her dad. I wanted her to be my daughter.”
