"I'm a mother. It's sad that I won't be able to give my children exactly what they want. Masakit 'yun sa akin bilang ina na hindi ko na kayang ibalik 'yung dati at buohin 'yung pamilya namin..."

Contrary to what she previously said, it turns out Sunshine Dizon seems to have  forgiven her ex-husband Timothy Tan. The actress and mom of two explained why she decided to drop the charges, alleging that Tan committed concubinage and violated the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.

"We filed our desistance. It means that we are dropping all our charges against my ex-husband, Timothy Tan," she told ABS-CBN news. "Siguro ang masasabi ko lang is, ultimately I'm a mother. It's sad that I won't be able to give my children exactly what they want. Masakit 'yun sa akin bilang ina na hindi ko na kayang ibalik 'yung dati at buohin 'yung pamilya namin."

"Ang pinaka-pwede ko na lang ibigay ay 'yung gawan ko ng paraan na hindi masira 'yung relasyon ng mga anak ko sa tatay nila so that's why we filed the desistance already," continued Sunshine.

"I also want to make it clear that hindi pa rin po tapos ang laban because I owe it to myself already to be free of all of this...."

She also told reporters that she will soon be filing for annulment instead.

"I also want to make it clear that hindi pa rin po tapos ang laban because I owe it to myself already to be free of all of this. So, I'm also filing na din for annulment," clarified Sunshine, "marami pong bagay sa buhay na kailangan nating tanggapin na hanggang doon na lang talaga pero ang importante ngayon sa akin is ma-save ko 'yung konting pwede kong i-save na maibibigay ko sa mga anak ko."

She added: "Marami pa kaming hakbang na gagawin, marami pa kaming hakbang na gagawin. Ang tinatapos ko lang ngayon ay 'yung kaso ko laban kay Tim."
