Sinan was born in 1979 in Mosul Iraq, the fourth child of an Iraqi couple. His parents decided upon his birth to give him to their brother Farouk, who had been unable to conceive with his German wife Brunhild. The two of them became Sinan's adoptive parents. In 1982 Brunhild decided to flee Iraq for Darmstadt in Germany. The adoptive father and birth parentsremained in Iraq. In the spring of 2007, after years of searching Sina's family found him through the internet and reconnected with him. A few months later Sinan finally met his Iraqi birthfamily in the United Arab Emirates. Up until the last moment Sinan displayed reservation about both his family and Arabic culture in general, however, upon meeting his father his attitude changed.
