They desired a daughter very much and Alejandra came as a blessing.

When Alejandra was just 40 days old, her biological mother, Gloria, Vicente’s sister-in-law left her at Vicente’s home. It was his birthday and the whole time, he played and bonded with Alejandra.

By the time Alejandra was ready to sleep, Vicente had decided he wanted to keep her as his own daughter.

From that day, Alejandra remained with the family and was raised as their own daughter.

When Alejandra was four-year-old, her biological mother, Vicente’s sister-in-law, Gloria Abarca Villaseñor, asked to take back Alejandra and took her away.

Vicente and his wife had pampered Alejandra so much that she used to call her own biological mother as “aunt,” because she wasn’t aware of her actual parentage.

When Alejandra was taken away by Gloria, Vicente expressed his distress and even lost weight and Gloria noticed his suffering.

She eventually returned Alejandra to Vicente.
