Alena Galan Wiki — Mom, Dad, Siblings
Alena Galan, a fostered child, only three-years-old was adopted from an orphanage in Krasnoyarsk, Russia by her now mother Marcia Galan.
Also, Alena grew up to have a very tight bond with Marcia, part of which got featured on TLC’s sMothered.
Having lost her mother soon before adopting Alena, Marcia believed Alena was the ultimate gift from her mother. Marcia explained,
“It was destiny and we were meant to be together. … Who could be closer than that — a match made in heaven, a gift from my mother!”
After the mother-daughter pair became part of the reality show, they were even criticized for the extent of love they felt for one another. Words like “strange” or the comments like they were “too close” were passed on by people watching the reality TV drama.
They, however, took everything lightly and laughed it off— to which their words were:
“We don’t have a strange bond. However, we do have a strong bond. Having fun and acting silly at appropriate time is just between us.”
It seemed, Alena and Marcia only had each other in the family. And Alena, devoid of any siblings, seemed to not care about the whereabouts of her birth mom and dad.
