Did Britt Adams press charges against his Dad and brother?

Thank you for including Britt Adams – I was so horrified by this story the first time I heard it, and have been trying to find it since. I really hope he is happy and doing well now.

Every time I hear Britt’s story, I get misty and tear up at my desk. I hope he met some people after the show and hope he’s flourishing wherever it is he’s living now.

I am truly curious to know WHY this family adopted a child from Korea. Noblesse Oblige? It is clear that Britt loved his family, at least up until he became disillusioned (maybe still does). Did/do any of his family love or care about HIM?

Kevin & Co, please try to persuade Britt’s father or brother or any family member to tell this same story from their own perspective.

That’s the tantalizing thing about true stories told and aired. I always want to know if the featured characters heard the story, and if so how it affected them. I always want to know how the telling of the story, changed the story going forward, for the storyteller… I like to think that the storytelling process can kick off a healing process for deep wounds.

Here I sit on May 9, 2022 after listening to the Reunion story — wondering the same things — how is ‘Britt’ doing? Has karma caught up to his family? Thank you for sharing his story – if it hasn’t already, I believe life has a way of working things out : let us all find a bit of peace in that thought.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
