Before the Curse
Lily is adopted. ("Best Laid Plans")
Lily - a baby who is in fact the daughter of one of the Enchanted Forest's most notorious dark sorceresses, Maleficent - cries as she's handed over by an adoption agent to a man who is to become her father, having signed all the paperwork necessary in allowing him to do so. The agent congratulates the baby's new dad as she hands the baby, asking him what he's going to call his daughter. He replies that she's going to be called Lilith; "We wanna name her Lily." He stares down at the baby in his arms, seeming content. ("Best Laid Plans")
After the Curse
Lily's father finds his daughter. ("Breaking Glass")
When Lily is a teenager, she runs away from home, and her father tries his best to track her down. He finds her exiting a store along with Emma Swan, having just robbed it, and tries chasing her in his car. However, she manages to get away and she and Emma soon take up residence in an unoccupied lake house, where they become best friends. Lily's father finally manages to track her down, breaking into the house one night with a torch in tow, calling out for his daughter. Emma refuses to let her friend be taken back into foster care, having been told that this man is her social worker, and it is revealed to her that this man is in fact Lily's father.

Emma is hearing none of it, leaving her "friend" behind, and Lily's father takes her home with him.
