Maria Biskie’s life has been through many twists, especially in just the last few months.
Born in the Philippines in 1973, she never knew who her father was. Her mother, Nora, told her he had died when she was a baby. She was raised by her grandmother until the age of 9. Her mother had two other children and had remarried. She collected Maria from her grandmother, and the family moved to San Diego, Calif.
