Bothari also could call on the Vorkosigans for support; especially Cordelia. I'm certain Cordelia had a hidden hand in Elena's upbringing.
I suspect Elena loved Bothari, at a core level; she was shattered when he died - falling into Baz's arms.

He hired a woman to take care of her, and she lived with her foster-mother, not him. I think it would have been a very different story if he'd been doing the actual parenting, as opposed to just coming by to visit on his days off.
