“Ever since my dad left us way back, when he stopped supporting us, inako ko. Sabi ko, kasi kawawa naman si mommy. Apat na nga kami, siya na nga naglabas sa’min, siya nagluwal sa’min… siya pa ‘yong magpapakahirap hanggang ngayon? Sabi ko, it’s my turn. I have to take responsibility if no one’s gonna take responsibility,” Ivana shared on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
