After months of waiting, Luca finally received the call he’d been wishing for in July of 2017. He received a call from social services saying they had a baby girl named Alba and they were wondering if he was interested.

Alba was 30 days old at the time and had been abandoned by her mother because she had Down Syndrome. More than 20 families had already been contacted and rejected Alba, but Luca said in an interview he “immediately said yes.”
