I put my money on her wanting to make amends with her dad. Maybe she needs some money from him or something, or he's just made her more miserable since she started antagonising him here. Perhaps he told her to bat for him as a compromise, or she did it on her own accord to appeal.
It’s pretty typical. The online fan club cheering her on and the drama faded away, so she reverts to the same old, familiar behavior patterns shes always had in the shitty relationship with her dirtbag father.

The only positive thing Cory ever did was marry a woman who seemed to be a decent step-mom for her.

This is far more words than I should bother with, but what she appears to be doing is pretty typical behavior for a neglected kid.

she’s never had a good, stable relationship with her dad. As an adult it seems like she’s bounced between being angry with him and not wanting much to do with him or wanting his approval/love and trying to establish a good relationship.

I thought the whole episode of leaving her old car for Cory was her trying to bribe him for a drip of attention and affection. He couldn’t be arsed to visit his grandchild but was ready to put in the effort for a free car. It was just another demonstration to me at what a POS Cory is. Daughter, Grandkids? Too busy, too broke, no time. Free car? He got his ass in gear and managed to travel, even though he could never seem to manage that to visit his daughter and grandkids.

I think she was quite angry and hurt that Cory had little interest in her and his grandchildren but was suddenly so invested in playing dad to new step-kids Jani and Bodhi (only because he had dreams of fame and money). The guy who was an angry, indifferent father to her and who couldn’t get off his ass to visit his own daughter and grandchildren was now pretending to be Dad of the Year on FB and for a slimy TLC show. She had every right to be pissed and call out his BS.

But now all the drama has faded. The online cheering squad and new BFFs have moved on to their next online drama fest. A year on she’s left with an even more broken relationship with her shitty dad and caring for two (or three?) small children. Even though Cory is a selfish POS she still on some level wants him to be a dad and grandfather. He won’t ever be the supportive father she wants, but that doesn’t stop her from hoping or prevent her from believing his lies and BS for the 267th time.

My biggest concern was it seemed like she married young and quickly had several kids. Crappy or absent fathers tend to lead women to pick crappy boyfriends when they are young, some wise up, some don’t.
Getting married young (before she could have established career or gotten education/training) and quickly having two or three kids leaves a woman very dependent upon a husband. If husband ends up to be a shithead or lazy, she’s caught between a rock and a hard place.

I hope that’s not her situation and by some miracle she married a decent stable guy who is a good husband and father...and can hold a job. But young wives with kids, who don’t beat the odds in the young marriage department, look for help and support anywhere they can get it. But Cory could probably easily waltz right back into her life and be forgiven if she’s in a rocky relationship or gets divorced. Shitty dads can look start looking a lot better after a few years with a shitty husband.

TL;DR Cory will probably be able to easily waltz back into her life if her relationship with her husband gets rocky or finances get tight. I can totally hear Cory counting the money he thinks is coming in from the sale of his MIL’s house and is telling everyone about it, just like he bragged about the big book sales Oprah would get them.

But even a simple message with a just a few kind words, or sending $50 when it’s needed, will soften any neglected kids’ heart and let them give dear old mom or dad another chance to totally disappoint them. It’s a sad, but all too common cycle.

She’s only considering herself and her relationship with her Dad - she’s ignoring his abuse towards Jani and Bodhi. Cory was happy to go along with making two kids zombies with drugs and exploiting them if it was going to bring in money and some fame for him. I’m sure she just pins all of that on Susan, and it certainly is Susan’s fault, but she now wants to ignore the fact Cory had no problem in assisting Susan and being complicit in the abuse out of greed and ego.

It sounds like Cory was just an typical dirtbag dad when she was growing up. He was a neglectful, selfish dad with a bad temper, who wasn’t very good at supporting his family or holding a job. Crazy Susan just gave him a unique opportunity to prove he was cool with severely abusing kids if he could benefit from it. Like a good dirtbag he has an out - justify it all by saying he totally believed Susan (or honestly thinks the kids are crazy) and was doing what was best. Dirtbags always have a excuse ready and someone to throw under the bus when the shit hits the fan.

Even casual observers online could see how extremely abusive and dangerous the situation was, but Cory didn’t give a fuck. Just like all dirtbags when he had an opportunity to be a hero (By exposing the abuse he was witnessing firsthand) he chose to be a villain (by becoming an abuser) because he wrongly assumed that the later would benefit him the most. The well being of the kids were never even a distant consideration.

Yeah I remember she jumped tf down my throat when I brought up that weird moment of Cory showing Bodhi porn. When I wasn't even trying to say that implied Cory was a diddler. But my girl went ooooff 🤔
She did this half a year ago on Facebook when several people asked her why she was trying to go on Dr Phil and why she was sharing pictures and personal information about Jani when she complained about Susan doing the same thing . People tried to excuse her behavior by saying she got hacked and Kelli denied this and doubled down on her actions.

Kelli started defending her father around the summer and was getting really bitchy with people criticizing Cory and she mentioned reconciling with him . Iirc this happened after she posted images of the birthday card she got from Cory.

Wonder if dear dad sending another card or liking a photo of one of her kids on FB melted her heart so much (and made her feel so conflicted) it spurred her to post that rambling nonsense, apropos of nothing, both here and on reddit. It’s really sad how easily with the tiniest scraps of love or decent behavior a shitty parent can win over a neglected or abused adult child.

I’d be curious if Cory has subtly or overtly encouraged her to post something defending him. But Cory just sending one of her kids a present or a nice sentimental convo on Skype is probably all it would take to make her feel so conflicted she would rush to post a out of the blue defense of dear old misunderstood Dad who’s not perfect and tried his best.

It’s all fine and good if she wants to forgive him for being a crappy dad to her, none of our business and no one cares anyway. But she really should know better than to ever defend his complicity in the disgusting abuse and treatment of Jani or Bodhi.

She’s never met Jani or Bodhi, never met Susan. Cory and Susan couldn’t be bothered to build any relationship with her or her kids/husband. All she knows about Jani/Bodhi is what everyone in this thread knows. The only information she’s been privy too, that we haven’t, is Cory’s bullshit defense of their treatment. She believed his lies about the when he first moved in with Susan, IIRC she even defended him some. A few years later, barely hearing from dear old dad even after giving him a car, she wised up after seeing all the irrefutable proof online.

Now she’s reverting back to defending him again because he’s acting like she exists again. We can just be thankful “aw shucks tried my best, really do care” script doesn’t work with the CA Dept Children and Family services as easily as it does with her.

Trust me, he's still a dirtbag. His wife is no better.
I think the only person posting in this thread who believes otherwise is his daughter.

There is no defense or explanation for Cory’s behavior other than scheming, selfish dirtbag who’s okay with abusing kids if he can get some money out of it.

California is full of people that sprout this passive-aggressive nonsense all the fucking time. I'm so glad I left.

I hope the next earthquake takes Cory and Susan out, how you like that negative vibe? To be honest I don't care if you like it or not.
Oh please. This isn't a California thing. This is an "Uneducated White Warrior Mommy Who Spends Too Much Time on Facebook Reading Mommy Group Memes and Selling MLM Crap" thing.

I guess she can sprout this crap because she wasn't the one being chemically lobotomized for years.
Those kids ARE doing better but some of what was done to a child's developing brain can never be fixed.
Her Dad participated in that, instead of GTFO or even trying to help...he participated in the utter hell that was those kids lives.

Quoting your own post,
"I realized he didn't have anything figured out and he was just doing the best he could with what he knew at that moment. Nobody has it all figured out and we are all going to make mistakes, and the fact that you think a mistake is obvious does not mean the person making the mistake knows that it's obvious"

woopsie doopsie, accidentally traumatized, neglected and physically harmed my kids and enabled their permanent brain damage. not sympathizing with a child abuser at all. you came here urging us to just "put ourselves in his shoes" in order to "bridge the gaps between all of our points of view" what the fuck? putting myself in his shoes makes me hate him more. It's fucking sad and he didn't do good enough. I wouldn't even treat some random dipshit kid the way Bodhi was treated. I worry over the best way to give my fucking cat a stable and happy life. if you can forgive him for whatever role he had in your life, cool. but don't come here to a thread about Jani and Bodhi, trying to get us to just view him as a well-intentioned guy who just didn't know what he was doing and is being so unfairly misjudged by evil internet people.

I'm glad Jani and Bodhi didn't have to meet you and get subjected to this shit tbh.

Why would anyone come to Cory's defense? Look at how he conducts himself, both irl and online. He's a fucking ASSHOLE, always talking tough but cowering away whenever solid facts were presented. If he and Susan are still together, they deserve each other. A loud manic hyena and her slimy, scumbag rat of a mate.

It's not exclusively a California thing, but it's a predominantly California thing, especially since all that New Age and I'm OK Your OK bullshit emanated from there. It's been a way of life and profession in California ever since the hippies preached that garbage starting in the late sixties all the way to the present. It's a fucking an industry at this point.

God I haven’t been on this thread for months and a shit show like this goes off.

Per Kelli's own initial posts:
Getting your spouse put on psych drugs so you could better control her;
Stressing your daughter to the point of attempting suicide;
Stressing your daughter to the point she miscarries her baby;
Grifting and scamming every chance you get, then lying to your family about it;
Marrying someone who abuses their children, and ignoring it, then participating in it;
Parading your shiny new family in front of your tired "old" kid and rubbing her gender in her face;
Abusing kids with the hopes of getting money from it;
Screwing your wife in the presence of a special needs child

All are "mistakes"?

God knows I've made mistakes in life and plenty in raising my stepdaughter.
I've never brainwashed her into believing she has schizophrenia or drugged her to the gills so I could collect money for my "disabled child."
I've never gotten my husband put on meds so he couldn't leave me.
Just something to think about.

She just doesn't want to admit her dad's a pedo, I mean I get it, but let's be real: Cory is a creepy pedo. "We've all made mistakes" my ass. I've never fucked my spouse next to her overly medicated kids.
Sticking her head in the sand about that is extra disturbing because she has kids. Hopefully she doesn't let her daddy dearest near her kids to do a do-over as grandpappy.

A mistake is forgetting to carry the one in addition or miscalculating the time it takes to get somewhere on time. How in the entire fuck is having sex in front of your child, filming your child in the shower and on the toilet a MISTAKE?
A parenting (or step-parenting) mistake would be giving your child too much freedom too soon, not properly monitoring their online activity, not checking in on their behavior/performance in school, etc.

The only way drugging two children could qualify as a "mistake" would be initially believing everything your fiance/new spouse told you about the medication and going along with it, then trying to stop it once you realized it was all a sham and abuse.

But we know Cory didn't do that.
