Elian-Gonzalez-ABC Exclusive

Everyone grows up eventually!

And 15 years after making headlines, ABC news has caught up with Elian Gonzalez for an exclusive interview talking about his life, the controversy when he was child and what he hopes to do now.

In 1999, Elian — 6-years-old at the time — was found off Florida's coast when the boat he was in with his mother was capsized. After this, Elian went to go live with his uncle in Miami, which caused quite a reaction from Cubans, as they felt he should be returned to his father in Cuba. Thus started a large custody discussion between U.S. and Cuba over where the boy should lawfully live.

In the interview Gonzalez mentions how he'd love to return to the United States, but only as a tourist to do things like attend a baseball game or visit Washington museums and talk to Americans. He goes on to express his gratitude for the American people through the experience he had by saying:

"To the American people, first I say thank you for the love they give me. I want the time to give my love to American people."

During the in-depth interview, Gonzalez goes on to speak about his memories of the night his boat capsized and he lost his mother, the pride he has for his family and what he's been through, and how he's moving on with his life.
