FROM MEXICO TO THE US
In 1995 he was abandoned at an orphanage in Toluca, Mexico. He was too young to remember his parents or when he was born, so the orphanage assigned him a birthday. In 1998 he and his older brother Eric were adopted and moved to Philadelphia, PA, United States of America. He went on to live with several families in the US after being put up for adoption again.
