“I was adopted at six months from Santiago, Chile. And I was adopted by Helen and Andrew Polizzi. They flew all the way to Chile to come pick me up and they said right when they saw me they said I was like, ‘Mama, Dada!’ So it was meant to be, things just work out that way — it’s called fate,” she said.

“I was always meant to be with my adopted parents, which I don’t even – ew, I hate saying adoptive parents because they are my parents. It’s weird. Even though my nationality is Chilean, I grew up Italian. So when people say to me what’s your nationality I say, ‘I’m Chilean but I grew up Italian.’ I feel like I’m both,” she explained.

“Eventually, when I was 21, 22, I got my dad drunk and was like, ‘Dad, can you just tell me what went on? Why was I up for adoption?’ And basically, my birth parents had other siblings and they couldn’t afford me…I can’t even imagine putting up a child for adoption to give them a better life. That’s so amazing for them.”

“I couldn’t even imagine how they felt giving me up, but thank you for that.”
