There’s sincerely nothing as touching as reading stories hinged around abandoned pets and children who finally get a place to call a forever home. In October, Greenlemon wrote about a gay couple who adopted a baby girl with HIV.
Now, we’ll be introducing you Luca Trapanese, a man from Italy who has trailed the same path as the aforementioned gay couple. Challenging the stereotypes of religion, fatherhood, and family, Luca in 2017 had adopted his daughter, Alba.
Luca, 41, had given Alba a forever home and his story has gone viral for many reasons. First, Luca is gay and single. Social services in his country (Italy) don’t grant custody to single and homosexual men. So, he took to the media and revealed he would be allowed to adopt a child with health problems. Still, Luca wasn’t scared at all.
