Meanwhile back in Lu's home town Valeria finds the note that Lu left for her mother Rosaura she couldn't be happier. She reads it now knowing where Lu is she studies her handwriting and rewrites it totally. Valeria writes as Lu:
I need to get away from all this all this treatment I am getting I can't handle it. Please understand I am going to be traveling awhile. It's better you don't know where I am.
You're daughter, Lucinda"
Valeria smiles then crumples up the other note that was left by Lucinda and throws it toward the garbage can. Not really paying attention to where it goes it hits the side and rolls under the stove. It is hidden there, but for how long? Valeria is very happy with herself she takes her note and sets it somewhere Rosaura will find it right away. And leaves the rest of the house untouched. She feels that things will change in the family now that Lucinda is no longer in town.
After work Rosaura comes home and is very tired she calls for Lu and finds she isn't home. She looks all over and reads the note she is very upset, but there is something about this note that reads very untrue. She goes around the town asking around and asking Lu's friend they don't know anything. Valeria watches as she does this and just grins the whole time she thinks she will get what she always wanted what she thinks she deserves.
Two and a half months pass Rosaura treats Valeria like a daughter while all the while Rosaura misses her daughter Lucinda. One day Rosaura does a good cleaning of the kitchen she comes across the REAL note Lucinda wrote Lu:
"Mama, I am going to go on a trip. Please don't be upset I have to do this. I can't handle this treatment from Valeria anymore. She well you know it's getting worse. So I have decided to go visit some family I haven't seen in awhile. I am going to go see Rafe and Gabi. I have to do this... please don't stop me. I am 17 years old and I can do this.
Rosaura gets very angry she goes outside to find that Valeria is writing a letter to Lucinda acting like Rosaura. And she figures this has been happening since Lucinda left. She gets very angry.
Rosaura: "Well you finally got what you wanted... Lucinda is gone and you knew all along where she was! I never want you to return to this house! You will never really get a place in this family now... Lucinda is my daughter!" Valeria: "NO SHE ISN'T! You may have given birth to her, but she is where she is suppose to be!
Rosaura backs away knowing that she has to go she her daughter in Salem. She goes into the house and slams the door. Valeria looks at the house then starts to walk away.
Valeria: "Fine, if that's what you want... this isn't going to be that simple... I need to get to Salem before you do."
Back in Salem Lucinda was getting along with most everyone in Salem. She has worked really hard each day and was happy. She feels at home and has been spending a lot of time with Gabi, Nick Brady, Abby, Will and Sonny. She has even spent time with Maggie Kiriakis as she had gotten a second job working at the spa. She didn't know how to explain this feeling that some people felt like family...
Rosaura reads a paper... a paper that explains that if she ever wants to know who Lucinda's biological parents are she must ask for an appointment with her friend... the doctor that helped her. She calls to make an appointment and discovers that months earlier someone pretending to be her did just that.... Rosaura is shocked when she knows that it was Valeria.... that was able to get this information over the phone....
To be continued... I will try to post every weekend!

A few days pass Rosaura has made an appointment to see this doctor friend of hers that did this favor for her. She then thinks of the past. A favor that did break rules. Dr. Emma Powers was her name and she had known Rosaura for years. Dr. Emma Powers had a clinic near where Rosaura lived but they hadn't seen each other in years. It was a promise that had been made for reasons that are obvious. As it goes Rosaura wanted to have a baby and at the time she lived near Salem, Emma during that time had a clinic on the outskirts of Salem. And she had gotten her "hands" on an embryo that had mistakenly been put together and then abandoned by a lab technician. Rosaura had been desperate to have a baby so why not let a child be born to someone that wanted to have a baby... those were Emma's thoughts. Little did Emma know that it was possible that's Lucinda's parents could still have wanted to have another child no matter what.
In the past Rosaura: "Are you sure you know what you are doing Emma? Is this even legal?"
Rosaura was concerned for her friend.
Emma: "It doesn't matter. Something strange already happened the rest of the eggs disappeared a long time ago. Only a few were left here. And from this paperwork it seems that somebody made a big mistake that they didn't want found out. But I found out anyway. You can have a child that can be a true miracle that you have always wanted. "
The procedure was done and 2 months later Rosaura was told that she was going to have a baby. Rosaura then snaps out of these memories as Emma enters the room and sits down.
Emma: "Its been a long time. I'm sorry for letting the information slip. Your niece made herself sound so much like you, that I really thought that was you.
Rosaura: "She is good at that and she has always been grumpy or jealous towards Lu, but the last months before Lu left... she was just plain mean."
Emma: "It might because of this information."
Rosaura reads the papers that Emma had handed her and she knew now who Lucinda's biological parents are.
Rosaura: "Are you kidding me? Are you sure about this?"
Emma: "You know the funny thing is now after all that happened and all these years her biological parents are madly in love and married. Almost like fate."
Rosaura's mouth opened and might as well hit the floor.
Rosaura: "She is in Salem in the same town as her biological parents and doesn't even know it..."
Emma: "She is?! What about your niece?"
Rosaura: "I...I don't know where she is."
Rosaura has a look of dread in her eyes. Lucinda is now picking up plates as she is working hard at "The Brady Pub" in Salem. She is happily whistling a song and everyone is smiling and watching her.
Gabi: "It's so nice to see you so happy Lu."
Lu: "Thanks it's so nice to be happy and not constantly looking around in fear."
Lu was looking at Gabi then she turns and picks up another plate from one of the tables. She looks up and out of the window and she sees that someone is staring right back at her. Lu starts to back away and drops the plate... everyone is shocked as this is the first plate that she has broken in 2 1/2 months. Caroline comes running in.
Caroline: "What's the matter Lu?"
Stefano, Kate, Victor, Maggie, and Brady were in the pub with Nick, Gabi, Caroline, Bo and Hope they were all instantly worried... this wasn't like Lucinda. Gabi goes over to Lucinda.
Gabi: "What happened?'
Lu points our the window.
Lu: "It... It's Valeria!"
Gabi looks as does everyone in the pub they all see Valeria smiling that type of smile that means bad news.

An invitation arrives to most everyone in Salem 2 weeks before the party. But to those outside Salem... they got the invitation a whole month before.
You are invited to a party! It is our 1st anniversary and we want to celebrate with everyone, because of the snow storm last year preventing almost everyone we invited from attending our wedding. So come one come all. 6:00pm November 8, 2012
Victor and Maggie Kiriakis
There were also invitations delivered to Doug and Julie along with Melissa, Sarah, and Melanie. They all decided to go to the party which made everyone happy including Lucinda.
But Lucinda was constantly worried and looking around since she saw Valeria. But, it seemed that Valeria was stalking Lucinda from a distance. Brady and Rafe decided to get a body guard to protect Lucinda from Valeria. Lu wasn't happy about this, but she went along with it for the two weeks before the party. But all would change the day of the party. It was a glorious November Day and the Horton town square was set up for the party. Rosaura after settling everything and finding out that Valeria was in fact in Salem finally arrived. She went searching for Valeria...
Meanwhile, in the Horton town square a little after 5:30pm people started to arrive. Lucinda had gotten ready early to see if anyone needed help.
Lu: "Hello.. Gabi."
Gabi:"Oh hello Lucinda."
Will: "Oh, hey Lu... I want you to meet Melanie Jonas."
Lu smiles and shakes Melanie's hand.
Lu: You must be Maggie's granddaughter. Nice to meet you.
Melanie smiles at Lu.
Melanie: Nice to meet you too...
At that moment Doug, Julie, Melissa, Sarah, Bo and Hope and several other Horton's arrived along with the rest of Salem... yes including the DiMera's.
Maggie and Victor finally arrived and the party begins. Lot's of talking amongst friends and family began. The food was served. Maggie and Victor danced and everyone watched. Everyone seemed to be very distracted and happy about that... including Lu's bodyguard. Lu walked around and watched everyone. She was even asked to dance by Chad and she did dance with him. She then walked to the bar a little later to get some water to drink. She gets a phone call from Valeria who at the time was making herself sound like Rosaura.
Valeria: "Dear it's your mother would you meet me at the top of the stairs here in the square."
Lu: "Yes, Mama. I will be there in 5 minutes."
They both hang up the phones. Lu went on her way and made sure the bodyguard didn't follow her. Rosaura arrived in the square. She started asking around for her daughter then when she came face to face with Lucinda's biological parents she knew what she had to do. She told them she knew who they were and told them there was more to them both wanting more children at one time in their lives. She hands them a folder.
Rosaura:"Just hear me out... I wanted a child and didn't feel that I could wait to meet the right person to have a child with. I have a friend that did me a favor and helped me and helped me have a child. And in the process she discovered that someone well... already, had made an embryo from...
As Rosaura was talking Lu discovered it was Valeria and she tried to get away. There was a struggle and Valeria grabbed a hold of Lucinda and started to scream. Everyone turned including Rosaura she was scared! Rafe and Brady looked at each other then looked at the bodyguard. They now have to to figure out what to do.
Valeria: "You are not a Hernandez by blood! You know what your name should be!"
Valeria yelled as Lucinda continued to fight her.
Valeria: "All of Salem say hello... to Miss... Lucinda Margret Elizabeth Kiriakis!"
All of Salem was in shock. Maggie and Victor looked at Rosaura confirmed it and pointed to the folder.
Valeria: "Say hello and good-bye!"
All of Salem looked at each other as Valeria started to drag Lucinda away. Victor looked at Stefano and they both got on the phones for help. They had one understanding. Family is Everything! Brady and Rafe race to the top of the stairs the long way around as the was the only way to get up there without being noticed. But it was to late as the struggle had moved and Valeria became even more angry. That she had had it!
Valeria: "That's it!"
Valeria grabbed Lu's wrists and pulled them then pushed Lucinda down the stairs. Brady grabbed Valeria so she couldn't get away. Lucinda hit the bottom of the stairs unconscious.
Everyone was in shock.
Next time on Family Secrets...
Isabella: "Sister, My dear little sister."

After the big shocking reveal at Maggie and Victor’s anniversary party would anything ever be the same?
Lucinda had been in a coma for a week. And during that time Victor had a DNA test done to see if Lucinda was indeed his and Maggie’s daughter. The DNA test had come back quickly. He had this test sent out to several facilities that only he knew about. Victor, Maggie, Melissa, Sarah, Melanie, and Daniel were all there when the results were revealed. Victor with Maggie read the results then handed them to Daniel. He looked them over and then looked at everyone there.
Daniel: “There is no doubt about it. Lucinda Hernandez is your daughter.” He is now looking at Maggie and Victor.
Maggie tears up as she is overjoyed Victor smiles as he holds his wife. Melissa and Sarah looked at each other then walk down the hallway.
Melissa: “I think we should stay in Salem for the time being. We are needed here and it gives us an opportunity to spend time with our family and Mom too.”
Sarah: “I think you are right. Maybe we should even think about moving back.”
Melissa: “Yes, yes we should do that. I will make the arrangements to start the moving process.”
Sarah smiles as does Melissa.
Sarah: “I think we should wait and make this a surprise for Mom.”
Melissa smiles and goes to make a phone call. Sarah walks up to her Mom.
Sarah: “Mom, how is Lucinda doing?”
Maggie looks at Sarah.
Maggie: “She is still in a coma, she had responded to Rosaura’s voice.”
Sarah: “And did she respond to you or Victor?”
Maggie: “Yes, she did. I just wonder when she wakes up how she will respond to this new situation.”
Sarah: “I am sure she will accept you. You are a good Mom!”
Sarah hugs Maggie.
Maggie: “But she has a Mom already… I don’t know…”
Sarah: “Well she can deal with this.”
She smiles. Meanwhile, Rafe and Gabi had come to visit Lucinda. Gabi held her cousins hand.
Gabi: “You are still our cousin no matter what!” Rafe: “Yes that right! Do you hear us?”
Lu hears an echo of what is being said but she merrily ignores it. Why would she ignore this? Well as she laid still in a coma there she was in a place of gardens a beautiful place. She smiled as she watched the birds fly by. Footsteps are heard she smiles and sings.
A Voice: Hello… Hello Lucinda.”
Lucinda turns around… She recognizes her as she has seen a picture once she smiles happily.
Brady comes to see how things are going he finds Victor.
Victor: “Brady… I have been thinking about Isabella all day. How do you think she would react to Lucinda?”
Brady: “I think…”
Lucinda runs to the woman and hugs her. It is Isabella she smiles.
