But in fact neither of them are Frankie's parents. They are there first because of a promise, and they stayed because Frankie has become a life-line to them both. For Noel, looking after Frankie has been his salvation. An alcoholic, he knew nothing about Frankie until her mother told him she was pregnant, he was the father, and she needed him to take care of the baby.
