Born in Baguio City, The Philippines 1965. My parents sacrificed so much for all of us to have opportunities and freedom of which the United States of America provided. My father (Philosophy Professor) was sponsored by great friends and left us all behind in 1965 to make a home for us finally settling in Wheeling, WV. We became US citizens 16 years later. The rest of it is history and quite the story of LOVE.
