Young woman, 22, happy and thriving after being adopted at 2-months

Noluvu Ludidi’s life changed forever when she was adopted as a baby of only two-months of age.

Noluvu’s adoptive parents ensured that she has everything she could need to be successful and happy. They kept her name when they adopted her so that Noluvu could still keep a part of her culture and her birth mother, who named her.

Noluvu and her adoptive parents had different racial backgrounds and heritages which had little effect on her happy and trusting home.

Growing up without her biological parents was difficult for Lulu at times. She often found herself dreaming that her parents would come find her, but her biological mother passed away.

But Lulu had a strong support system of friends and the new family that took her in and loved her as their own.

The 22-year old believes that every person should have a home and people who love and support them, and is thus proud and thankful for the adoption system.

Lulu’s heart warming story is a reminder for South Africans to pay attention to progress with adoption laws in the country. Social workers are under-resourced but changes made to policy could require adoptions to be facilitated by a social worker.
