Abel Teller is the son of Jax Teller and Tara Knowles. His birth mother is Jax's ex-wife Wendy Case. He was born premature with cardiac and digestive system problems but, after surgery and a long period in the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Thomas, he was removed from the incubation chamber in "The Pull" and now seems to be a happy, healthy baby. In the episode "The Sleep of Babies," Abel was finally released from the hospital and a welcome home party was held for him. In season 2, Abel's mother Wendy was in a sober living home and Abel was primarily taken care of by Gemma, Tara and Jax. Gemma hires a nanny, Neeta, for extra help. He was kidnapped by Cameron Hayes in the season 2 finale and was taken away to Belfast, Northern Ireland to Cameron Hayes cousin Maureen Ashby. SAMCRO went to Ireland to track him down. Father Kellan Ashby put Abel up for adoption to a "good catholic" family. His reasoning to Jax was a direct quote from Abel's grandfather, John Teller. Abel is now being raised and cared for by his father Jax and stepmother Tara.
