“We will never forget the moment we first laid eyes on Daniel”

Chris and Noel Vella Galea had been married two years and the thought of one day becoming parents had been on their mind.

The couple decided to seek advice from an adoption agency and after careful consideration decided to go for it.

Their enthusiasm heightened and the couple even attended an adoption course. They were eventually approved by the authorities and began receiving the initial information about a Portuguese boy, Portugal being the only country that allows same-sex couples to adopt.

They will never forget that moment they looked through a window and saw Daniel for the first time in Portugal.
