Menelea Camille Labasas realized two months after that she made a mistake when she had given away her baby. When Mr. Raffy Tulfo asked her why she wanted to take back her word and have the baby in her arms again, the woman emotionally explained that at the moment she was dreading the financial responsibilities that might keep her from being a good mother.
“Kasi po two months bago makilala ko sila, litong lito ako na wala silang anak tapos sabi po nila sakin na sila nalang daw po yung magaalaga.” said Menelea who was clearly incapable of deciding during her state.
“Ngayon po dahil single mother po ako saka gusto kong mabigyan ng magandang kinabukasan ang anak ko dahil alam ko pong hindi po ako makakapagtrabaho agad dahil may dalawa po akong anak na nag-aaral, umo-o po ako pero wala pong kapalit na kahit na ano,” the young woman elaborated as she was doing her best to hold back her tears and keep her composure while on the television screen. She also added that the family has voluntarily paid for the expenses of her childbirth.
However, the adoption didn’t go through the correct process and even qualified as a form of an act that could put them behind bars. SP01 Manuel Lanuzo, the man who adopted the baby was put under scrutiny for being a police who did not abide by the law. Nonetheless, they had agreed that they will return the infant as the baby is rightfully hers.

Adelaida Tiamson, Women’s desk from Brgy. Putatan Muntinlupa, explained the whole situation to the family who adopted the newborn child.
“Ito po ay papasok sa trafficking. Kasi sa kagipitan, pumayag siya. Pero ngayon nakunsensya siya, binawi niya yung bata alam ko yung nararamdaman niyo. Alam ko pong napamahal na sainyo yung bata, pero wala po tayong magagawa.”
Ultimately the baby was returned to his or her mother.
“Thank you po sir Raffy, nakuha ko na po yung baby sa pinagbigyan ko.” Said Menelea with a big smile.
In similar news, Baby Grace Roda also went on to the show to have her 1 week old baby returned to her. Like Menelea, there was no formal adaptation but hers was much quicker as the person she had given her child to fully understood the situation.
Bing Mingo, with a very chill and relaxed tone said, “Huwag kayong magalala, dadalhin ko yung baby. Hindi kami sir, ano, interesado sa baby siya lang po talaga nagbigay. Kusa niya yan.” Said the woman who helped with with Baby Grace’s pregnancy and childbirth.
“In fairness to her, marami siyang ginawa para sa baby mo.” Said Raffy Tulfo.
There were more happy endings that episode as the baby was also rightfully returned to the mother who dearfully said on camera to her child, “Bubuhayin ko to, kahit ako mag-isa, kahit maghirap ako, mamasukan man ako, babantayan ko ‘to.”
She then also went on to thank Raffy Tulfo for his help.
