          Why Dad Of 18-Year-Old Daughter Adopted At Birth Says She Doesn’t Fit In


          January 10, 2018

          Beth and Jim claim their daughter, Madie, 18, is a danger to the family and “completely out of control.” They claim Madie, who they adopted at birth lies, steals and is sometimes physically abusive.

          “Madie can be explosive, vile and physical,” says Beth, claiming her daughter has pushed her down, pulled her arm, and punched her in the back.

          “Madie is like a hurricane. She leads a path of destruction,” says Jim, who claims his daughter’s behavior is “more a mental health issue than a rebellious teen issue.”

          He says that with all the chaos that Madie causes at home, the family is better off having her live somewhere else.

          “She doesn’t fit in,” he says, adding, “There are times when I’ve wondered what it would be like to have my own children.”

          What “drastic things” does the couple say they’ve done in order to get their daughter the help they claim she needs? Tune in to Wednesday’s Dr. Phil.
