Damian Pighin and Ariel Vijarra are the first openly gay couple to be married in Santa Fe, Argentina. And they wanted to bestow love to someone else. So they adopted two young girls, Olivia and Victoria.
The men worked in an NGO, that helps unwanted children find new parents. But nevertheless, the men had waited for a baby for 3 years: they left an application for adoption in the NGO and waited for a call with an offer.
Olivia appeared at their family when she was just less than a month old.
It’s frightful to think of her future life if this gay family wouldn’t have adopted her. Olivia was rejected by 10 families as she had HIV.
When the men arrived and looked at the girl, they understood, that she was really “their” daughter.
After adoption, Olivia received treatment and tests showed, that the virus was no longer detectable in her body.
Vijarra and Pighin live in the Sante Fe province of Argentina and have been married since 2012. They adopted Olivia in 2014. So now she is 5 years old.
May all of them be happy! What do you think about this story? Tell us in comments.
