When he was born, nobody ever thought that baby Adam could have a normal life, not even the doctors. What was worse is that his own mother abandoned him at birth. And no one in the family was willing to take him home. Adam came into this world with severe physical deformities and was even called a 'curse' at the time, according to Live Action. He was born with a cleft lip and palate, didn't have eyelids or a nose, and had fused legs and hand abnormalities. As horrifying as it may sound, the innocent baby's parents threatened to take his life if they were forced to return home with him. Just when the doctors were concerned over the baby's situation, a nurse and her husband who, too, works in the hospital paid him a visit. Learning about the situation, they came forward to adopt him. Little Adam found a safe home and loving parents that he deserved, just like any other newborn.

His new parents, Raja Paulraj and Jessica Cooksey Paulraj, were married for just 6 months before they found out about Adam.  They knew that he was diagnosed with Bartsocias-Papas, and the couple was told that he wouldn't live past a few weeks. Despite this, they decided to take him home and make him a part of their family.
