Last December stored a surprise for the first gay couple to have adopted a child in Brazil. Four years after adopting Teodora, Vasco & Junior decided to try a second adoption, just to find out that this second child, only 2 years old, was Teodora's sister, now at the age of 11.

In 2008 their case made headlines on Fantástico, a very popular Brazilian TV programme, when they were granted the right to have their names registered as Teodora's parents on her birth certificate. 

Vasco says that he noticed see so many similarities between the two girls that he decided to go to the city court in order to find out who Helena's biological mother was. However, no details about her background were given until they were finally granted the adoption. 

Differently from Teodora, Helena was immediately registered as their daughter without the need of later additions. 

The couple say that they won't stick to only  two daughters, though. They intend to adopt another one, says Vasco enthusiastically.
