Tina and Tim adopted Evan when he was 8 years old and say raising him has been a challenge.
“Evan had a very traumatic upbringing. He was both neglected and abused,” says Tina. She says Evan had trouble making friends and lacked social skills. “Evan has brought a lot of chaos into our home.”

Tina’s husband, Tim, adds, “Evan came to us at age 7 very much damaged … He endured a lot of beatings.”
The parents claim Evan, now 18, has stolen money, credit cards, Tina’s engagement ring, and his sister’s car. He has also been arrested three times and is facing two felony charges.
