“It was troubling,” Tabitha admits. “But I recognized that he is not a child molester. He has a sexual attraction to children, doesn’t act on it.”

Tabitha says she hasn’t seen any behavior to the contrary and 100 percent believes Gary when he promises her that he won’t act on his urges. She says she has no reservations about Gary being around kids, including their 10 grandchildren.

Young Woman Who Claims Former Foster Father Raped Her: ‘I Still Have Night Terrors’

Birth Mom Claims Child’s Adoptive Mom Told Her Their Son Is ‘Out Of Control’

Jerica says her parental rights to her son were terminated several years ago because of her issues with drug addiction. Her ex-husband Kody was awarded custody of the child and not long afterward, Kody’s new wife, Kim, adopted the boy.

After telling Kim she’d been sober for over two years, Jerica says she was recently invited back into the boy’s life. “In the process, Kim told me how out of control [his] behavior had become, and how much problems he had started in the last several years.”

Kim and Kody claim the boy has severe behavioral issues.
They say he was sent to a residential psychiatric treatment facility for six months after they claim they discovered him trying to hurt his baby brother.

“Last week, I was trying to explain some of [the child’s] problems, and a huge argument broke out,” says Kim, describing a recent confrontation she had with Jerica.

Jerica says she finds the whole situation odd. “A couple of years ago, Kim and Kody were doing everything they could to keep [him] out of my life. Now that there’s some behavior issues with my son, they just want nothing to do with him, and they put it all on me.” She claims Kim dropped the boy off at her door a week ago, saying she couldn’t deal with him; but has since taken him back and cut her out of his life – again.

Jerica claims the stress of the situation triggered a relapse; causing her to start using drugs again, after 10 months of sobriety.

Birth Mom Whose Parental Rights Were Terminated Expresses Surprise At Being Invited Back Into Her Son’s Life

Jerica, who says she’s a recovering drug addict, claims her parental rights to her son with (now) ex-husband, Kody were terminated four years ago, without her knowledge.   She says she only found out that Kody’s new wife, Kim had adopted her son after the fact.

“Why go to all of that trouble – to cut everything off, change the birth certificate, terminate the rights – and then re-engage?” asks Dr. Phil.

Kody says he wanted his son to have answers to questions he was asking about Jerica; but Jerica says Kody and Kim had another reason for inviting her back into their son’s life. She claims Kim told her the boy is “out of control.”

‘I Went Off The Deep End,’ Says Recovering-Addict Mom Whose Parental Rights Were Terminated

Jerica says she lost custody of her son several years ago because of her drug addiction. “My drug use became pretty bad,” she admits. She claims her dependence began with an Oxycodone prescription she was given to deal with the pain of “the very difficult birth” of her child. “I was also consumed with post-partum depression.” Jerica says her doctor prescribed Klonopin, which she also says she abused. “Things quickly spiraled out of control.”

Jerica’s ex-husband says her addiction led to the end of their relationship. “We had a lot of problems in our marriage and we thought it was better to go our separate ways,” says Kody. He says he then grew worried about their son who was living with Jerica.
