With nowhere else to turn, he returned to his friend Aubreyâ€™s house. Her family once again took Corey in, this time permanently.
â€œInitially we set Coreyâ€™s bedroom up in our basement,â€ Dale explained. â€œWe gathered what we could since he didnâ€™t bring anything with him. His first bedroom in our home was made of walls with moving blankets tacked to the ceiling. There was a bed, a nightstand, an old dresser and a box fan. That kid was so freaking happy â€¦ Made me cry to see Corey with next to nothing and be happy about it.â€
Weeks later, Mindy and Dale filed a petition to formally adopt Corey. On the day of the court hearing,Â Coreyâ€™s birth family didnâ€™t show up to contest the adoption.
â€œI want the world to know that Corey is a beautiful human being,â€ Mindy toldOut In Santa Cruz.Â â€I want the world to see Coreyâ€™s pain and know it is not necessary. Sexuality is such a small part of who we are. First and foremost Corey is a loving, genuine, caring, intelligent human being. Who he is attracted to and who he marries is of little significance.â€
