This was heartbreaking to watch!! I pray that all of the siblings are blessed with peace and healing! Hard to come to terms with the adoptive parents only doing two years for the harm that they've done!

I am so utterly and totally disgusted with the system. They super failed these children. How could it take 3 years from the time the man turned them in until they finally rescued these children. Then for the people to only get 2 years UGH!!!!! I cried most of the show today. How can DFS or Children's Services take children out of a loving home with parents that feed and clothe their children because of a fabricated reason, but they leave children living in cages in a home for more than 3 years.

Out of all the shows this is one touched me in a way , I can not explain. We are the parents of 4 adopted children 2 which are special needs. We would never dream of treating our children like this.These ppl should never have been allowed to adopt. Praying for kids

As upset as you might be from witnessing child abuse, do not confront the abuser.

Really...If a school teachers or aides are abusing a child .....No one is going to help the kids or the parent.... Not CPS or APS or the police !!!!!! The only help that kids has is the parents !!!

I once witnessed elder abuse in public, and confronted the woman. She screamed at me to mind my own business. I told her it was my business, because she was doing it right in front of me. I went and found 2 policemen to tell, but I've often worried about that poor old man in the years since.

Love it. Married 40 some years.Some times I just want to rip his throat out. Sorry. I feel he thinks only of himself. I think of family and kids at the the the age of sixty and he is still about him. I feel he is so selfish. When you are this old you need to teach the young how to function. It's not about us but our legacy we leave behind. It's all about are offspring!

I'm at a loss as to how or why some people are so cruel and evil. Those poor children. Thank God somebody said something. Shame on children's services for shoving those notes in a file and forgetting about it until a decent worker found it and did something about it. God bless all of them, that they heal and have happy lives now. Those cruel so called parents deserved to be sent to prison for decades, not 2 years!

Abba has such a wonderful dad and with his support, patience and kindness she has made a remarkable recovery. Simon is an inspiration, I just pray he succeeds in life, please keep us updated on these two, I will be keeping them in my prayers. As for the facts of their early life, those weren't parents they were monsters and why it took so long to save those children, is beyond me. I hope their other brothers and sisters have survived.

I am watching this now and I am crying .... Such a heartfelt thing you did reuniting these people! I just do not understand why it took 3 YEARS! 3 minutes is too long! Prayers to the brave young kids! I wish you the best!

Sorry legal system we have!! These kids were abandoned and social services never did any home checks! thank God that man reported it, but pissed those monsters only received two years. But God is good, the daughter was adopted by a great family and that young man going to college paid for!! Those adoptive "parents" which I use the term parents loosely will receive their karma!

I can't believe these horrible people only got sentenced 2 years. It makes me sick !! They should rot in jail. My heart goes out to those poor kids. They will need a lot of therapy. They were treated like animals in cages. 😢 That man was a hero that saved those kids

Dr. Phil, PLEASE tell the network to stop with all the commercials during your show. I am getting soooo bored watching these 40 min. worth of commercials and 20 min. of your show. It is becoming absolutely ridiculous. How much does the network need to make in advertisements at your cost of audience? I am going to have to quit being that 4:00 avid fan & DVR it and watch later (which is actually what I have started to do). Now my fingers are getting sore by how much I have to press the fast forward button.

I don't understand why it took 3 years once the conditions were reported for the authorities to act. I really don't understand why these monsters got only two years in prison, I would have put them in a cage for as many years as the children were times the children to see how it felt. Thank God that they were saved and now have good people supporting them.

Reported and ignored for 3 yrs. go to authorities that will immediately do something. Do not stop UNTIL something is done !!! 3 more yrs of abuse??????

Our system is so broken. After the man reported them it took 3 YEARS to even act on it! Then the monsters get a mere 2 year sentence. The monsters actually referred to them as monkeys and told them to get in their cage when the man was there. The "dad" described that he knew when a kid was trying to escape a cage by looking at their hands because they'd be covered in blood and scratches. They never showed an ounce of remorce and saw nothing wrong with what they did. Disgusting vile "humans".

I could see if just one children said it – but every single one? Horrible and I'm so glad those kids were rescued. I hope the rest of their childhood was better. Good for Simon for going to college – he seems like a very polite and respectable young man. He wants to help other kids as a social worker- I wish him the very best!

Simon, you are an amazing young man and deserve the world. I am so sorry for what you have been through in your short life. I am glad that you have decided to turn it into a positive by becoming a social worker. The system sure needs changing and I believe you will make that happen. There is only one Simon on this earth and you are here for a reason. Never give up. God bless you in all you set your mind to do.

I feel so bad for this young man and for the court system to allow these parents to be free in 2 years, that is not even the amount of time they spent on the crime. Hope your life will treat you better for your future.

This happens way to often... the foster care system is overloaded and both foster care and adoption requirements are almost impossible for normal caring hard working people to pass.... instead they give children to people like this whose income, credit, and whatever else looks good on paper....nevermind they are monsters on reality. ... the system should spend more time looking into the actual person(s) and family not bank accounts and paperwork...jmo

How are these monsters even allowed to adopt a child let alone several children? Don't you have to be screened and have random checkups or something? It's beyond my comprehension how anyone is violent towards any child...I don't get it...it makes me sick to my stomach!

I'm pro choice . People who are against abortion say "just give it up for adoption" . This is the biggest reason why I could never give up any child for adoption ! I couldn't live without knowing how my kids would be being treated and couldn't live with the guilt and constantly thinking how they would be doing . I'd rather one million times have an abortion in an early stage than give birth to a human being to be put through this 🤢🤢🤢

I'll never stopped being so utterly shocked and disgusted by such evil. Sending warm thoughts and prayers for these children. I wish them abundant blessings and happiness for the rest of their lives.

I don't think either one of them should
Of been blessed with these kids. How do you refuse medical help to your kids for one and being a nurse but having a shower and having a nap was more important then ur dying son who should of had medical help long ago I would think the first thing is your kids and protecting them not an abusing alcoholic scumbag who also abuses ur kids and makes u do it too.
yesterday at 13:57
They should both be in prison. Dr. Phil always says those watching bullying and doing nothing about it is worse than the bully. She's a nurse. A mandated reporter. And she watched her son die as she did nothing. That's a crime anywhere I know of.

checking with an herbalist doesnt always help..they just say there isnt any research done on the herbs with prescription drugs. most of the time herbs are ok to take with anxiety meds as i have found out. maca for one is ok to take with pretty much any other pill.
