Romania’s Got Talent

You’re probably familiar with the TV show America’s Got Talent.  Other countries have their own adapted versions.  The person who won the grand prize in Romania’s Got Talent was Alberta, a very special fourteen-year-old girl.  Abandoned at birth, she was born without arms and half the length of her legs.  Alberta sang and played the keyboard with her feet.  She’s very special because Romania has the second-highest abortion rate in the world.  It’s a miracle she survived the womb.  Her foster mom has encouraged Alberta all her young life.  The prize happened to be awarded on National Adoption Day, and the cash winnings will be used to promote her singing career and get a ground-level apartment and customized furniture.  The rest, she said, will be given to charity.
