Baby Girl With Down Syndrome Adopted By Single Dad After She Was Rejected By 20 Families

By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory

Is it relevant whether a child is yours by blood or not? All the little ones are the collective children of an era and deserve our care and affection. The love that one feels for a child who isn’t related by blood can be the same and even stronger at times.

This child had to go through the trauma of rejections. 20 families refused to adopt her by the time she was 13 days old! They all missed her charm, and the fact that she is different, and instead focused on her disability. They never learned to accept her for who she is. They were blind to the fact that they had just missed an opportunity to find beauty in the unexpected, failed to realize the true meaning of unconditional love.

Luca Trapanese’s story is all the more poignant because single male parents are usually not granted the custody of a child, especially when they are homosexual. But the social services made an exception in this case and gave Alba a happy home. He adopted Alba in 2017 when she was a couple of weeks old. It also made Luca the proud and happy parent of a very special child.

When we fix our gaze on the disability of a child, we disregard the fact that they too have their abilities. A child afflicted with Down Syndrome is as beautiful, loving, and unique as any other child. Each child born into the world is singular with their special place like pieces in a puzzle.

Kids with Down Syndrome are quite guileless and affectionate. All they expect is constant affection and encouragement and the attachment to them grows over the years.

Luca has challenged the stereotypical image of a parent and that

has made him a phenomenon, especially in Italy where things are more

conservative. Homosexuals and single people find it difficult to adopt a baby. Luca has challenged the stereotypes built around fatherhood, sexuality, and family.
