I know a guy who I shall refer to as Carlos.

He was very close with his uncle, who was more of a father figure to him than his real father was. So, when his uncle died, leaving behind a pregnant mistress, his initial plan was to adopt the child as his own and give the child his name.

Such was his loyalty to his philandering uncle... he believed his uncle wouldn't want that child to grow without.

But we dissuaded him from the notion. Besides, the mother wouldn't give her daughter, whom she named Althea, up.

Around three months after this child was born, Carlos fell in love with a single mom. They are now co-habiting and are scheduled to wed this coming December. He considers the love-child his own.

The single mom's daughter is called Lian, a nickname. Her real name?
