After getting married. Many couples believe that starting a family is the obvious next step. For other couples, though, this is not even an option. This was Regrettably the case with Ron and Natalie Trach, a young Canadian couple. After learning the awful fact that they would never be able to produce a child, the Tricoses were crushed and hurt.
It was the one thing they desired above all else to start a family. After years of trying and failing, the Trocoses decided it was time to give up on their dream and look for something different. It took years for the couple to recover from the devastating news. They ultimately decided that they would not give up on having children just yet. They realized that adoption was their only alternative.
They knew they would love any adopted child just as much as a biological child, despite their initial desire for a biological child. When the Tricoses made the major decision that would change their lives forever in 1997, the adoption procedure was typically slow and laborious. The young Canadian couple was accidentally directed to Romania by fate and serendipity.
Through the 1990s, Romania was home to a large number of abandoned children who were in critical need of medical attention and a good home. The couple had no idea that as they drove into Arid, they would come to find an incredible new member to their family.
They fell in love at first sight when they met Rodika Levina Farkas, a sweet and smiling little girl, Anne knew they’d discovered who they’d been looking for. They had no clue, however, that there would be more surprises in store when they returned to Canada to begin their new life. Ron and Natalie Tricus wanted a baby more than anything else in 1997. They’d been talking about having children together since they were first married. However, after years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive, the young Canadian couple became dissatisfied and disheartened.
They would have gone to great lengths to establish a family. The pair started looking into all of their options in order to make their dream a reality. The couple chose to look in a different way. After receiving the devastating news that they would not be able to conceive. Despite their desire for biological children, the Trachosis were forced to abandon that option in favor of other options.
They were queer about what they desired a child to call their own. They would still adore the baby unconditionally, even it was not biologically theirs. The young couple realized that adoption was their only option in 1997. However, the process was incredibly complicated and time consuming. The Tricosas were ready to wait and do whatever they needed to in order to adopt a child.
Traveling to Romania was part of this. The couple found themselves in Romania looking for a future addition to their family. Before they even realized it, the pair chose to visit Arid, which is located near the Murray River in Western Romania. On a whim. They had no idea how quickly their baby daughter would arrive.
When they arrived, they were introduced to Rodika Lavinia Farkas, a charming little girl. They knew she was the one they were seeking. For the moment they laid their eyes on her. They were well aware that they had been drawn to her by fate. When Natalie and Ron learned of the awful news about the sweet girl, their jubilation came to a standstill.
Rodika, unfortunately, was in poor health. The oneyearold who was always smiling was severely underweight. As a result, she had a broad list of health problems and was more susceptible to sickness than other youngsters. When Natalie and Ron learned of the news, their hearts broke. Rodika was born into the arid orphanage and was sent there shortly after Rodika was taken to the orphanage because her mother was destitute and couldn’t afford to care for her sick child.
According to the young couple, Rodika was not only underweight, but she had rickets, a condition that caused her bones to become incredibly weak and fragile owing to a lack of vitamin D in her system. Ron and Natalie, who had already fallen in love with Rodika, vowed to go to whatever length to ensure that she lived a healthy and happy life.
The couple needed to learn everything they could about her medical history and background in order to offer her with the best medical care and treatment possible. They were willing to go to any length and pay any price to secure the little girl’s happiness and health. Nothing was going to stand in their path.
The couple began working tirelessly at all hours of the day and night in order to gather the information they required. This process was far more difficult than either of them had anticipated. Due to Romania’s lack of organization, the pair refused to give up and continued their investigation into the little girl’s past.
They gathered every scrap of documents and bit of information they could find, and what Rodika’s new adoptive parents discovered stunned them both. The Tricosas decided to start with Rodika’s family tree and work their way up from there.
They gathered as much information as they could in the hopes of finding a clue that would lead them to a solution. They came into a surprising revelation. All of a sudden, Rodika had a sibling and was not an only child. Rodika’s mother had another kid, whom she also gave away. Rodika not only had a sibling, but she also had a big sister before Rodika.
Her sister was likewise given away and placed in an orphanage nearby. Ron and Natalie were taken aback when they discovered that the two girls had been raised in very different institutions. As a result, the two young daughters were separated when they were quite small. This also meant that the Farkist sisters were probably unaware of each other’s existence. The reasons for the sisters being separated and sent away is still unknown.
Ron and Natalie now add a new mission to locate Rodika’s older sister. The pair was adamant about not giving up any time soon. While some new adoptive parents might be concerned about the scenario, the Tracosis had already determined that they would not return to Canada without their two adorable girls. Ron and Natalie finally found Rodika’s older sister and adopted her right away. The older sister’s name was Giannina Barcas and she had a striking resemblance to Rodika.
Despite the fact that the sisters had never met before, they clicked right away. It almost seemed too good to be true for how well the new family of four got along. Finally, the Trachosis and the family of their dreams. They were ecstatic to return home and begin their new family life. However, their joyful story didn’t end there.
After returning to Canada, the new family proceeded to research their family tree. It just so happened that Giannina and Rodika were not their mother’s only children. The two sisters had a total of six brothers and sisters. The Trukosas tried everything they could think of and spent a lot of money in the hopes of finding the siblings, but there was no hope. In the end, the identities and whereabouts of the remaining six siblings are still unknown.
Despite their disappointment at not being able to locate their other siblings, the couple concluded that it may have been for the best. They were exceedingly fortunate and delighted to have initially discovered Rodika’s sister. It’s still incredible that they became a family of four in just a few days. Taking care of eight children would have been a difficult effort, even if their hearts were in the right place. The Tracosas wanted to give their two new girls a new and joyful life after they’d been through so much.
As a result, they decided to rename them. Giannina was given the name Sophie and Rodika was given the name Danielle. The new names were a perfect fit for the girls’characteristics. The family had some emotional hardship when they moved to a new nation and culture, but the girls rapidly adjusted to their new home and environment. Even though everything was beautiful, Ron and Natalie still felt that something was missing.
The new parents felt awful that their daughters had lost touch with their Romanian background and culture. After altering their kids names, their daughters prior Romanian names were kept as middle names. This ensured that no matter what, they would always be conscious of their roots.
The parents were delighted with their decision and believed that this simple gesture would mean a lot to the kids as they grew older and began to wonder about their origins. Sophie and Danielle were unfortunately just two of the many abandoned children in Romania throughout the 1990s.
Nicolai Cusco’s regime during Romania. During the time, he was a deeply devout politician who also happened to be a Communist. As a result, he prohibited the use of any form of contraception throughout the country. As a result, mothers who were frequently destitute had more children than they could afford. Because most Romanian families were unable to care for all their children, they were forced to give them up.
Sophie and Danielle were among the fortunate children who were taken to orphanages in the hopes of being adopted. Unfortunately, many of the unwanted children were abandoned on the streets and died of hunger or other health problems. Sophie and Danielle were exceedingly fortunate to have been adopted and to have been reunited.
Many people throughout the world became aware of the girl’s beautiful narrative of fate and chance. One filmmaker was particularly moved by the Trucose family story and requested Ron and Natalie’s permission to shoot a documentary on their incredible story.
