          Reunion Gone Wrong?

          March 04, 2019

          PLAYING Reunion Gone Wrong?
          Lorie says her husband, Dan, knew years ago that she placed a baby for adoption when she was 15 years old and always supported her finding him again one day. But Dan says since Lorie reunited with her now 26-year-old son, John, two years ago, their entire family life has been shattered.

          Dan says he believes Lorie and John have an inappropriate relationship, and he feels like a complete outsider in his own home while Lorie snuggles on the sofa under a blanket with John watching TV shows like The Bachelor. But Dan and his daughters, Stefanie and Ashley, claim there are even more serious concerns because John has had violent outbursts toward Lorie, hitting her and causing her to have bruises on her body which Lorie tries to hide to protect John. Lorie and John both say they feel they are not only mother and son but best friends and just want to spend as much time together as possible to make up for lost years. John admits he has acted out and has occasional violent outbursts, which is partially due to him being on the autism spectrum. John says he just wishes Dan and his sisters could love and understand him like Lorie does, because he just wants to be part of one happy family.
