Meanwhile, Fiona is forced to raise her siblings since she is the eldest daughter. However, because of such circumstances Fiona dropped out high school when she was young.
Nonetheless, despite all her efforts, Fiona can't replace a mother for her siblings. It's worth noting that sometimes Frank remembers about his duties as a father; but not for long.
