She asked Angelito to let her take care of Junjun with the latter not allowing her. As a result, Andrew urged her to file a custody case in court. Angelito had to prove to the court that he was capable of raising the Junjun alone. Unfortunately, the court grants Junjun's custody to Rosalie and Angelito can do nothing but to let the child live with his mother.
He then focused on his relationship with Jenny despite still being in love with Rosalie. Junjun found it hard to understand the family setup because he wanted to be with both parents. At first Rosalie thought that her son would adopt to the situation, thinking that she got what she wanted by taking Junjun back, but later decided to return him to Angelito after realizing the boy's pain of being away from his father.
