Unforunately, Lukas managed his farm badly. Once he lost everything. He and his wife became very poor. When their daughter was born, they were happy but also worried. The couple didn't know how they would raise the child in such poverty. They had no more friends or relatives. Nobody wanted to help them with their daughter's christening.
