#1 Is easy - It is hard to accept the loss of a grandchild like this. #2 Bamboozled by Casey. I feel number 2 is the largest factor here. We have evidence in the documents that Cindy hates people of hispanic desent. Casey's best friend from high school has even stated this, mentioned that she herself was never allowed in the A's residence when Cindy was home for this very reason. George was ok with it but not Cindy. Casey dated many spanish men to spite her mother according to this same friend and I believe others have mentionedt his as well. I think Casey selected a person of hispanic decent in her story of the Nanny specifically to gain Cindy as an adversarry to anyone opposing her story. She even used the trip to Puerto Rico as a possible location for her "kidnapped daughter" Someone who holds a hatred for another race would stand fast behind their daughter in such a situation and would easily be blinded to their own daughters actions/deciept/lies and buy off on everything she said. I know people just like this in life and I can see this exact thing happening with some of them, I believe this may be the problem with Cindy and why she refuses to see the evidence placed in front of her own eyes. I feel Casey is using Cindy's hatred against her to keep her blinded.
