How Angelica Panganiban Made Me Cry

Above is the link to Boy Abunda’s article about how Angelica Panganiban learned about her adoption. Some months back, Angelica figured in a bitter fight with a fellow actress who was her friend since their “Ang TV” days. Several weeks before that, she was fighting with that fellow actress’ sister because of Derek Ramsay, her boyfriend.

There was something in Angelica Panganiban’s eyes that caught my attention. Her eyes were filled with kept emotions; sad eyes even when she was smiling. When she was a young girl, I remember that she dreamed of becoming a beauty queen someday. Those were the days when she played second lead to Camille Pratts.

The viewing public never had a hint that she was not her mother’s biological daughter. The only thing that we know was her parents were separated. Seeing her in a picture with her biological father after years of separation really melted my heart. It made me cry.

I felt Angelica’s joy; she felt complete after seeing her father. I wish she was given the chance to see her biological mother but she died in Singapore two years ago. Nevertheless, her love and respect for her is still there.

Many children, adopted or not, take their parents for granted. Many parents, biological or foster, take their children for granted. Angelica loves both her foster and biological family. Hats off to this girl!
