Barbara says 15 years ago, she lost custody of her children after she was falsely accused of abuse and neglect. She admits that at the time, she was addicted to drugs, but she says she was a “good mother” with a “happy family” and didn’t deserve to lose her kids forever. Barbara says she has been clean for 14 years and wants to clear her name and reunite with her children, 29-year-old Lindsey and 20-year-old, Bobby Lynn, who changed his name to Dylan -- whom she hasn’t seen since he was 5. Lindsey says her childhood was frightening and unstable, and she had to be the mother to her little brother. She says when she was placed in foster care at 11, she chose to stay in the system rather than go back to her mother -- and even wrote a letter to the court in an effort to rescue Dylan, who was eventually adopted by his aunt, Patrice. Lindsey faces her mother on Dr. Phil’s stage. How does Barbara answer to Lindsey’s accusations that she tried to kill her kids in a house fire? And, can Lindsey find forgiveness? Plus, both Barbara and Lindsey say they’re eager to reconnect with Dylan, who they claim was kept from them by Patrice. Is Dylan interested in a relationship with his mother or sister? Don’t miss Part 2, tomorrow, when Dr. Phil reunites this fractured family. Can they heal the wounds of the past and move forward?
