Lauri Peterson Adopted Her Drug-Addicted Son’s Daughter


ImmortalNews.com:
Former star of Real Housewives of Orange County, Laura Peterson, has revealed that she has adopted her own granddaughter. The child, who was approximately months old at the time of the adoption, but has now reached the age of three, is the biological daughter of Lauri’s son Joshua, reports StarPulse.

The adoption came about due to difficulties Josh and his wife were having raising the child. According to RadarOnline, Josh was in the grip of a strong heroin addiction. He was arrested for shoplifting and possession of meth paraphernalia. To exacerbate the matter, this arrest included a “wild brawl” with police that was captured on video. Josh pleaded not guilty to the pleas, and his sentence was reduced to 120 days in prison, starting on November 20th, 2014. This came after a June 2014 jail sentence and a September 2014 jail sentence.

"It’s been such a great experience because this is helping them out and hopefully they can get their lives together and be OK. But … now I get to see a side of George that I’ve never seen before. And if I was in love with him before, I’ve fallen so hard in love with him now because he is so generous to take on this huge responsibility."

With the family struggling, and the father having difficulties of his own which made his presence in his daughter’s life difficult, Lauri and her husband George decided to step in and help, reported Bravo’s The Daily Dish. 

While the situation is difficult, the adoption is actually proving to be a boon to Lauri and George’s relationship. The Daily Dish quoted Lauri as saying “It’s been such a great experience because this is helping them out and hopefully they can get their lives together and be OK. But … now I get to see a side of George that I’ve never seen before. And if I was in love with him before, I’ve fallen so hard in love with him now because he is so generous to take on this huge responsibility.”
