          ‘Sometimes You Have To Give Yourself What You Wish You Could Get From Somebody Else’


          October 30, 2018

          Karen spent 30 months in prison on one count of mail fraud and five counts of wire fraud for promising her unborn babies to prospective parents in exchange for financial support. Her ex-husband, Frankie, says he and Karen had 10 children together and eight of them were “put up for adoption.” Three of the former couple’s biological children claim Frankie masterminded the adoption scam, but he denies ever benefiting from any money Karen received.

          Their oldest daughter, Sandy, says she felt as though she’d been sold “like a piece of furniture” when she learned her adoptive parents “bought” her for $5,000. Dalton claims his biological parents put a $3,000 price tag on his head.

          Ava, the youngest daughter, was raised by Frankie and his second wife, along with an older brother. She claims her father molested her from ages 5-12, which Frankie also adamantly denies. Frankie refuses the offer to take a polygraph examination telling Ava, “If I had done something to you, I would tell you.”

          After excusing Frankie from the stage, Dr. Phil speaks with the three siblings about moving on from their past hurt.

          “The problem is; we generate the results in life that we believe we deserve. So, if we have a damaged personal truth, we think we’re damaged goods,” he tells them in the video above.

          Continuing, he says, “Sometimes you have to give yourself what you wish you could get from somebody else. Sometimes you have to look yourself in the mirror and say to yourself what you wish you could hear from somebody else.”
