Maging Akin Ka Lamang (International title: Till You Are Mine / lit. Just You to Become Mine) is a 2008 Philippine television drama romance series broadcast by GMA Network. Based from the 1987 film of the same title, the series is the sixth instalment of Sine Novela.[1] Directed by Gil Tejada Jr., it stars Nadine Samonte and Polo Ravales.[2] It premiered on January 21, 2008 on the network's Dramarama sa Hapon line up. The series concluded on May 9, 2008 with a total of 78 episodes. It was replaced by Magdusa Ka in its timeslot.


Maging Akin Ka Lamang unveils the intertwined lives of four people: Elsa Paruel (Nadine Samonte), a travel agent; Andy Abrigo (Polo Ravales), an ambitious OFW architect; Rosita Monteverde (Isabel Oli), a wealthy brat; and Ernie Balboa (Carlo Aquino), a businessman.

Elsa is an orphan working as a travel agent when she accidentally meets Andy, with whom she instantly falls in love. But rich heiress Rosita, Andy's childhood friend who is obsessed with him, will do everything to have the architect for herself. Rosita seduces him and they have a one-night stand. When Rosita's father, Augusto (Juan Rodrigo), finds out about his daughter's affair with Andy, his secretary's son, he sends Andy abroad. Afraid that Don Augusto will fire his mom Aida (Dexter Doria) from work, Andy has no choice but to go, leaving Elsa heartbroken.

But true love can wait. After five years, Andy returns and rekindles his romance with Elsa and eventually gets married. Andy and Elsa's marriage leaves Rosita devastated and vengeful.

Using her wealth and even her family friend Ernie, who is obsessed with her, Rosita steals Elsa's baby and makes it appear that the child died at birth. This leaves Elsa and Andy distraught.

After several years, Rosita comes back with Elsa's child who she has named Adrian (Jacob Rica). Is stealing Elsa's child enough to end Rosita's vengeance? Or is it just the start of her never-ending revenge and fury? And what if Elsa discovers her obsession; will she remain true and just to Andy? Is Andy's great love for Elsa enough to protect his family from Rosita's wrath? And will Ernie be able to find his much-needed space in Rosita's heart? Or will he just end up being the big loser?

Things are working out for Rosita as she uses the child against Andy and Elsa. The tables are about to turn on her when Andy's best friend Rick Rivera (Mike Tan) arrived from the States. During a lunch out Rick told Andy that he saw Rosita leave the country with a baby that Rosita claimed was her nephew. This revelation made Andy feel that the child Rosita introduced to him and Elsa is their child — he knew that Rosita is an only child so it's impossible for her to have a nephew or a niece. Andy realized that the rumors spreading that Rosita stole their child is true.

Elsa asked Rosita for help to make Adrian believe that Elsa is Adrian's real mother. Rosita wants Elsa to give Andy back to her to make Adrian believe that Elsa is her real mother. Elsa and Andy annulled to get Adrian from Rosita. Andy was supposed to go away in their wedding but Rosita still follows him on the airport. They were in the airport when Rosita was shot. Rosita died at the Hospital and buried to her house. Elsa promised to take care of Andy and Adrian. Elsa and Andy get married.
