This is not the whole story. The night prior to this incident, Mr. Jansen found out a group home where the niece he raised was investigated for sexual assualt. Since his niece came back from living at the place crying for weeks and not telling her family why, he can only suspect she too was victimized at the group home and she has been an emotional train wreck since. His spirit broke when he found out about the Adams group home investigation thinking his niece that he raised as his daughter was also assaulted there.
My nieces instabilities led the new group home to think her aunt and uncle (us) were the cause of her emotional instabilities and instead of her getting therapy, the group home decided to file allegations against us. And they carelessly tossed in things like "missing money" from a bank account which are easy enough to follow the paper trail and verbal abuse for asking where her medical equipment worth $5,000 is (any acting parent would want to know).
Brian was a recovering alcoholic until he found out about his niece's possible assault and that sent him over the edge.
Brian needs help as he has been fighting alcoholism since high school when he had his first drink. No one can take the constant stress when working to build a normal life for a child with disabilities, let alone multiple disabilites. Thats stress enough, but the kind of stress from the false accusations we have been going through were both unnecessary and fabrications. The truth is-if people helping my niece now and her case manager can't follow a simple bank statement paper trail, then maybe they shouldn't be allowed to manage their own bank accounts. It's been six months and they have no real paperwork to back up their accusations of anything and have done nothing but cause everyone unnecessary stress and hardship.
I'm sorry for my husband, no one chooses to have an alcohol intolerance, it's a genetic trait like diabetes or brown eyes. It has the same % population saturation as diabetics. These are people who with 1 drink-are alcoholics. And sometimes not drinking for him is like us non-alcoholics holding our breath and sooner to later we have to breath. He has been a wonderful father to a child with multiple disabilities and I have seen many men walk out on their families when they have their own disabled children in the home. He needs help more than anything and my niece needs therapy so she can start talking about what really happened to her at the Adams' group home.
I'm also sorry for the people who get accusations thrown at them when they are doing the best job they can to raise children or help vulnerable adults. People work hard to raise their children the best they can. We are not alone in that. Under the law, the accusers have complete impunity when making any statement and they use it and tell us we have no rights. However, false accusations also come with a penalty of $10,000 per and child protection and worker with vulnerable adults should be aware that may be applied as a personal fine.
The real story here is a system that fails families.
