Victor was born to unknown birth parents and was raised, it is assumed, by a single mother. Near the end of Season Three, his birth mother was arrested and sent to prison, where she signed over her rights to Victor.
Life after Being Placed in Foster CareEdit
Victor was then taken to Julia and Joel's house on the night of Crosby and Jasmine's wedding. He is placed, and later adopted by them. He is very interested in video games, and on his first couple of days of school, he faked being sick because he was afraid of the other children.
In Season 4, Victor struggled adjusting to life with Julia and Joel. He struggled in school and struggled to make new friends. Eventually, Joel helps Victor join a baseball team where Victor is eventually accepted, and Julia helps Victor catch up with his classmates in school since he had missed 47 days of school in the year before his mother went to jail. All is going well until he begins to feel like he isn't part of the family. He doesn't feel like Julia is his mom, so he acts out. It doesn't help either that Sydney taunts him about where his mother is. She pushes his limit by saying that his mother didn't love him because he was a bad boy. This causes Victor to throw a metal baseball bat at Sydney which misses her and breaks the door behind her. Julia lashes out at Victor which causes Victor to think that Julia hates him, and he refuses to have her in his life. Adoption is Joel's idea, and Julia repeatedly sabotages the adoption process by bringing up her hesitations when they meet with an adoption agent because of his coldness. Julia doesn't believe that Victor loves her. Crosby speaks to Julia about his feelings when he first met Jabbar, his son who was five when they met, and Julia calms down and then agrees to adopt Victor. In the season 4 finale, Sydney doesn't want to come to the adoption ceremony because she doesn't think he belongs in the family, but then he invites her to come, and she says yes. The whole Braverman clan attends the adoption ceremony, and the judge asks if anyone else has anything to add. At this point, Zeek promises Victor to give him everything that have given their other grandchild: love and support and an affinity for baseball. This sparks the whole family to make promises to Victor. Adam and Kristina promise to love and be the best uncle and aunt that they can be. Max says that he's going to let Victor hold his pets now. Sarah promises him that she'll help him get out of trouble and not tell his mom. She also promises dating advice, and Amber says that she promises to help fix the issues that her mom's dating advice will cause. Crosby promises to teach him how to ride a motorcycle and play an instrument which he says will cause the dating problems to go away. Jabbar promises to have sleepovers with him all the time and that they'll play XBOX together. Lastly, Joel, Julia, and even Sydney promise to love him forever.
