Mario Bostez and Irene Sancho, a couple from Sevilla, managed to adopt a broccoli coming from Japan. The vegan couple had to deal with a complicated process to prove that they can take care of the broccoli by keeping it in optimal conditions.
“We didn’t want a flesh and flood kid because we’re vegans. That immediately makes you different and raises suspicions”, said Mario.
Finally, after the long process they managed to get what they wanted and little Brasicacea is resting in her green-painted room.
“It’s better to adopt them when they’re little sprouts, since it’s less traumatic for them”, Irene explained, who wanted a Japanese daughter. “In Japan they don’t want broccoli, and sometimes they let them go off or abandon them”.
The heat in Sevilla was one of the first problems that the couple had to face: “We installed three air conditioners to satisfy all the requirements”.
Irene also recognizes that the adoption of little Brasicacea (originally called Burokkorii) will help her heal from the loss she had at 20, “I lost my biological fungus when the candidiasis was interrupted”.
Even though vaginal fungus often prosper if no treatment is applied, in her case they just disappeared leaving a “deep emptiness in my heart”. Since the couple wasn’t able to “make more fungus come”, they finally opted for adoption. “It costed us a lot, but everything turned out fine. We’re decided that next year we’ll get a cabbage”, they said.
