WHAT A STORY! This one made me cry...
Robin Barton was found in a dumpster recently after birth with his umbilical chord still attached and covered with garbage by a police officer, who is now retired. A recent reunion with the officer who saved his life lead to his BIOLOGICAL FATHER contacting him!
Buenina is the officer who found him.
Meza is his biological father.
Barton always knew he was adopted, but only recently did he ask his adoptive parents to tell him the whole story, Buelna said. After Barton learned what had happened, he called the Santa Ana Police Department right away to get reconnected with Buelna and to thank him, Buelna added.
The reunion made the local news. Meza saw it on T.V., and he called the police department, which verified he was the father before allowing him to meet with Barton on Sunday, Buelna said.
Meza told KABC he had been searching for Barton for years.
"For 24 years, I always said I would like to find him, and I finally did," he said.
Barton, who was raised an only child, now has five sisters from his biological father and more relatives who he's thrilled to meet, Buelna said.
“I’m going to meet as many family members as I can,” he told KABC.
Buelna is also making plans for Barton to finally meet his biological mother, who is currently in Tijuana, Mexico, he added.
Barton told KABC, "I forgive her because she was a young woman in a very compromising position."
