    Kyron Horman's stepmother is a profile in contradictions....

    Haven't read the whole article yet, but what I have read--looks like the most detailed look at Terri I've seen in a while:

    But interviews with more than a dozen friends, relatives, former colleagues and neighbors paint a complex and contradictory picture of a woman with immense personal charm who can be both supportive and self-centered. Sometimes giving, sometimes demanding, she has a few close friends who have stood by her while she's been vilified in blogs. She has a bachelor's and a master's degree in education but has never held a full-time teaching job. Colleagues say she was a dedicated teacher yet during the past year she cracked down on Kyron when he had a bad day at school.

    Still, not one said they could imagine that a woman who has devoted so much of her life to children could have been involved in his disappearance.

    "I would agree with that statement up until a point in time," said Kaine Horman, her 36-year-old estranged husband, who has filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order against her. "I know a lot of things now that I didn't before. Now, I think there is a huge problem. I don't know what she's not capable of at this point."

    AND A LOT MORE THERE including info about her adoption:

    Guys, you've got to read this article!

    Chuck Ecker said he never quite trusted Horman, suspecting she harbored ulterior motives.

    "She did things to impress people," he said.

    In August 1998, two years after they were married, Richard Ecker adopted Jxxxx. Tarver, who struggled financially, agreed to give up his parental rights.

    The Eckers thought it was a bad idea.

    "She pushed him," Chuck Ecker said. "And being Richard, being a good guy, he adopted Jxxxxx."

    Chuck Ecker said in certain situations Horman was self-centered.

    When asked for details, the couple recounted this:

    Once when they were shopping online with their son, Horman walked into the room and asked what they were doing. They told her Chuck Ecker wanted to buy a boat. "She said, 'Oh, so you're spending Jxxxx' inheritance,'" Mavis Ecker said. "She was serious."

    Wow, holy bio. It is basically a life story. So much input from so many people. I'm not sure where to begin a discussion on this one, lol. It definitely paints a progressive picture.

    Says that it was Terri who decided to send Jxxxx away while Kaine was on a business trip, because she and Jxxxx had gotten into a fight and she couldn't handle him anymore.

    Wow! I can't imagine that there's anything left to tell up until the day Kyron disappeared.

    (I do hope the J can meet up with his sister and Kaine soon. Poor kid.)

    "Controlling with my money yeah," Kaine said, "because she was spending all of it. She was going out and spending it like water and not checking with me where we should be spending our money."
    Excuse me ??????

    It also clarified how the parents worked out visitation -- complicated, involving not just Kyron but Terri and Desiree's other sons and various dads, moms, stepdads, etc. It wasn't just Terri having to drive Kyron every other week.

    The thing that stood out to me the most was Terri's moving her roommate's bookshelf and books outside and not understanding that wasn't acceptable.
    Plus, rearranging and throwing away some of the teacher she was subbing for's things.

    The things said by her former inlaws seem tainted by the fact that they don't seem all that pleasant. (Like when Terri greeted her MIL with flowers and balloons, and the MIL seemed very ungrateful and ungracious about it.)
    The only way what they're saying about her trying to curry favor that might be important is if they didn't like her overtures because they could sense that she really had no affection for them and was being manipulative, but there's no way for us to judge that, I don't think.

    Her son does seem to verify that she was the one who sent him away, though he seems to have no hard feelings about it.

    The one thing that wasn't in the article that I would have liked to have seen was J's take on exactly why he left the house.

    To be honest, I take anything Kaine says with a grain of salt - given that he believes TH took his son, consciously or subconsciously, he's going to paint her in the worst possible light.

    BTW, puf ...

    I was thinking about starting a thread along these lines, but I wasn't sure where to take it. I'm glad you did, thanks.

    Not wanting to change the direction of this thread, and trying to stay on topic... but she's been arrested for much more than one DUI and burning leaves in her yard.

    Now that we have something with such detail about her past, could you clarify and source what you said here (bolded above)? I noticed the article didn't state any other arrests but the one for DUI. TIA.

    I totally caught that too. Had to re-read it three times to make sure I read it the way it was meant.

    I wish the same. I feel so sorry for the boy.

    Tell me...if you are the sole breadwinner and you have a budget you need to conform to and your spouse is spending willy-nilly...wouldn't that bother you?

    I don't really think Kaine meant "my money" like it's all mine, all mine and Terri can't touch it...I think he was pointing out she was being careless in her spending and it was having an effect on the family budget.

    Wow, that was quite a story to read through. So, we know a lot about her character okay... but.. where is Kyron? I seriously do not care about her character or anyone's character or anything else anymore. Honestly that's why I haven't even come on much to read through posts. There's really nothing left to say or think up as far as what happened to sweet Kyron imo.

    Where is that boy?

    The bookshelf thing is definitely weird. But as far as subbing, she was doing it during (and I assume after) her pregnancy, which means she was likely there for months. So rearranging things as she needed is understandable. Throwing stuff away was a bit much, depending on what it was she tossed.

    The things said by her former inlaws seem tainted by the fact that they don't seem all that pleasant. (Like when Terri greeted her MIL with flowers and balloons, and the MIL seemed very ungrateful and ungracious about it.)
    The only way what they're saying about her trying to curry favor that might be important is if they didn't like her overtures because they could sense that she really had no affection for them and was being manipulative, but there's no way for us to judge that, I don't think.
    The MIL seemed a bit catty, to say the least.

    Her son does seem to verify that she was the one who sent him away, though he seems to have no hard feelings about it.
    I didn't see that. He does say he was camping.
