In 2012, Lori gave a rare interview regarding her struggle with post-adoption depression.
She said: “Before I got here I was on a downward spiral. I had no dreams, I had no goals, I didn’t care what was going on day to day.
“I would wake up and go back to bed. There was nothing to get up to and work on. Now I have everything to work.
“After my pregnancy, I went through a difficult period. I couldn’t believe I had an open adoption with my son. I was not working. I stopped going to school. I knew I needed a change.
“I see a great career. A family, a beautiful house and a couple of animals. I really have a big dream for me so I plan to achieve it.
