Balotelli Was Born With Complications

Mario was born to Ghanaian immigrants Thomas and Rose Barwuah. Mario’s parents relocated from Ghana to Bagnolo Mella, Italy, after his birth. Mario’s childhood was spent coping with digestive system issues that required multiple surgeries. However, due to a digestive system defect, it became evident that the newborn required specialized medical care.

The Balotelli family had a horrible personal tragedy. Mario spent his first year of life battling illnesses that necessitated him to spend extended periods in the hospital.

He was placed in foster care with the Balotelli family when he was three years old since his own family was unable to fund his medical needs. Mario’s foster parents are Silvia, a Holocaust survivor’s Jewish daughter, and Francesco Balotelli.

He first stayed with the Balotelli family during the week and returned to his biological parents on weekends. He was then permanently fostered by the Balotellis and took their surname.

Balotelli had to wait until he was 18 to apply for Italian citizenship since his foster family had not adopted him. On August 13, 2008, he was granted citizenship in Concesio. After the ceremony, he issued the following statement:

I am Italian, I feel Italian, and I will forever play with the Italian national team, as reported by wikipedia.org

 He later was permanently fostered by the Balotellis full-time and adopted their surname. In June 2012, he dedicated his goals that put Italy in the final of the Euro 2012 football championships to his foster mother Silvia.
