Instead, with the help of her Grandmother, Rhonda, who lives nearby, Annie uses what little money her job at the local cafe affords her and her inheritance from her father to raise Ronnie and Mary herself. Annie continues to search for the childrens' parents but she soons discovers that Ronnie and Mary have different fathers and that Ronnie's father will not take Mary, only his son. Again the children face separation unless Annie can come up with a solution.
