SYNOPSIS. Third from the youngest among her siblings, Adela grew up having the least attention in the family. She stopped studying and worked as a baby-sitter at the age of 18. She took care of Abby, a baby girl from an unwanted affair. Abby's prominent family kept her identity a secret. Despite her youth, Adela became a mother to Abby. Adela loved her as her own, and devoted her years raising Abby. When Abby reached high school, her grandmother disclosed her true identity and that her "Nana Adela" was only her nanny.
