Three Adopted Kids Raped and Abused by New Father
From Ohio, comes a totally despicable tale. Adopting from foster care, you hear all too-many stories like this but many kids never tell because they could end up somewhere far worse.
A 39-year old man is accusing of raping his three adopted children and allowing other men to have sex with them.
Kenneth Brant is charged with three counts of rape and one of compelling prostitution. Police say Brandt was arrested during an online sting in which an undercover detective arranged to have sex with one of the children.
Brandt had legally adopted three children and was in the process of adopting a fourth who lived with him. The children include three boys and a 9-year-old girl.
Police say one of the children, a 10-year old boy, told them two other men besides the suspect had sex with him. Police said the other two boys, ages 9 and 12, also said the suspect had sex with them.
The boy initially told police that he did not want to divulge because he was afraid he would be separated from his brothers. The kids were adopted in 2011 from Texas through a private adoption agency, which is now under investigation. The two other male rapists were also arrested.
Uh! You must wonder about the processes behind this private adoption! How well was this guy screened? How did he get three kids and those poor babies. Is anyone else completely outraged by this story? It sets back private adoption by three decades — who can you trust with these vulnerable, beautiful innocent kids?
Someone tell me a happy story of adoption, please!
