A Girl With Down Syndrome Couldn’t Get Adopted Until This Man Came Into The Picture

Made For Eachother

Luca and Alba sleep on their backs next to one another.

By the time Alba came into his life, Luca was already well versed in caring for those with special needs. He told BBC that at just 14-years-old he cared for his best friend, Diego, who had terminal cancer. Luca remained by his side and cared for him until the end.

This experience inspired him to start volunteering at a church in Naples where he cared for those with illnesses and disabilities. Alba’s down syndrome was something he knew he could handle.
