In 2008, Julia was a single mom, homeless, and living in a car with her 15-year-old daughter, Olivia, her 12-year-old daughter Phoebe, and Olivia’s newborn daughter. Julia claims that when authorities found her homeless, they placed her children in foster care. Julia and Olivia say that within 6 months, Olivia’s daughter was adopted. Julia claims the adoption was illegal, and she wants to know how to legally fight what she calls this “injustice” that happened to her family because they were broken and poor. Olivia claims she did everything she was told to do by caseworkers in foster care, but they still took her child. She says she never agreed to place her baby for adoption. Olivia claims the adoptive mother, Jyllian, lied to her, falsely promising pictures and the chance to be part of her daughter’s life. She and her family want Dr. Phil’s advice on how to keep fighting for her little girl.
