Single Gay Dad Adopts 1-Year-Old Girl From Hospital Against All Odds

Pablo Fracchia is a single gay dad that grew up in the conservative South American country Argentina. Becoming a dad as a single gay man always felt like a distant dream for him, as he grew up in a conservative country that constantly attacks gay people. However, Argentina has since changed for the better, and Fracchia’s dream has now become a reality! He’s now the proud dad of a little girl named Mia.

The girl suffered from a severe gastrointestinal condition, and she was living at the hospital after her biological parents couldn’t provide her with the care she requires. Fracchia stepped up and adopted the girl!

Fracchia, a former Red Cross volunteer, didn’t think the day he would be allowed to start his own family, would ever come. As much as he wanted to be a dad, fatherhood was never really an option, and he was reminded of it constantly. “I remember seeing the archbishop on the national public TV channel saying that every gay man should go and live on an island and stay away from good working people,” he told Bored Panda. “So there is an absolute distance between my childhood and the current situation.”

Although he never believed that this could become his reality, he never lost hope.

He’s been an avid LGBTQ+ activist for years and a former Red Cross volunteer, and he’s been fighting for gay rights in his country for more than a decade. However, fatherhood was never an option for him, and he was constantly reminded of it. He told Bored Panda that he remembers seeing the archbishop on TV saying that every gay man should go and live on an island and stay away ‘from good working people’. Thankfully, there’s an absolute distance between his childhood and the current situation in Argentina!

The strong and persistent LGBTQ+ movement in Argentina resulted in legalizing gay marriage in 2010.

Fracchia was informed about Mia and was told of her condition and that she was up for adoption. However, she needed serious medical attention, and four other families were shortlisted by the family judge to adopt Mia besides Fracchia. After he was chosen, he got to meet her for the first time the very next day, and the duo is now inseparable!

Fracchia is completely aware that it was the storng LGBTQ+ activist and the community that enabled him to become a dad, so he urges others to continue fighting for the cause and make Argentina a more equitable society.
