ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — When a Texas fourth-grader was talking with his classmates about where they dreamed of going, his answer wasn't an amusement park or sporting event. It was "his" fire station.

Koregan Quintanilla was abandoned at an Arlington fire station when he was just a few hours old in 2002. Under Texas' Baby Moses law, a parent can leave an unharmed infant up to 60 days old at a fire station or hospital with no questions asked.

On Thursday night, Koregan got his wish for his 10th birthday. He met Arlington firefighter Wesley Keck, who found him a decade ago, and rode on a fire truck.

Koregan's mother, Rebecca Quintanilla, says Koregan always has known he's adopted and has watched TV news footage from when he was found at the station.
