She must have thought she was something special; the question is, why? Was it because of talent or beauty?

What if it came from being connected? There's no reason to believe she didn't have any 'connections'. We know she bragged about a relative on the stage.

It doesn't even have to be family connections. She could have gotten them on her own.

Default Family Tracing

As we know the Salvation Army was in the business of rescuing prostitutes and their children, but they were also in the business of "family tracing" since 1885.

So it actually does make sense for Mary to take a child back home to Liverpool or anywhere else. She could have taken advantage of this offer and returned with her child to her family and place of birth.

And then she could have gone back by herself to Whitechapel and Barnett, whether or not he was the wiser.
