My Surrogate Agency and Legal Issues...

Okay, I don't know how clear I ever made this or if I ever shared about how horrible my surrogate agency was, but this proves it all!!  In a time of vulnerability and emotional instability from being pregnant with the triplets, I could not handle the serious issues I was having with Miracles Egg Donation and Surrogacy like I really should have and I really believed all the lies and crap that the owner, Allison Layton, fed me day after day.  I came across this article today (which was dated in July 2011) and I cannot believe how many people she has screwed over!!  Well, yes, I guess I can believe it because if me and my IP's weren't as demanding as we were (IP being an attorney too), I know we would have totally been robbed like so many people.  Here is the short article with comments from poor egg donors and IP's:

http://www.eggdonor.com/blog/2011/07/27/allegations-misconduct-leveled-miracles-egg-donation-surrogacy/

Throughout the time I worked with this agency (about 18 months), I experienced unnecessary stress and anxiety about compensation that was owed to me month after month.  She began taking a portion of my compensation away each month, claiming that that was what my contract stated (confusing issue), but I would not let her get away with this.  I contacted the lawyer and Allison was in the wrong.  When I confronted her with proof that I was owed the money, she acted like I was being a selfish bi*ch and from there more problems came about.  Month after month I was dealing with her by myself and was so uncomfortable to get my IP's involved; talking about my compensation wasn't an easy thing to do with them.  But, after I delivered and was owed thousands and thousands of dollars, I had to call my IP's.  They were outraged because apparently they were getting their trust fund statements each month showing when and how much I was being paid, so they never thought there was an issue.  WELL, I wasn't getting paid according to the statement Miracles mailed to them and stuff was not adding up.  My IP's demanded that I get paid and demanded that they close their trust fund and get their money back.  My IP's and I would then deal with that remaining compensations privately.  Of course my IP's didn't get this money back and it took a long fight.  I am not sure how that all ended. 

After more investigation, I guess Allison has ran away from her business in Glendora, CA and now lives in Idaho.  Some people even stated that she has left some of her children behind with her ex husband.  Her business is no longer running and many people have complained to the BBB and some even got the FBI involved.  She is facing some serious allegations and I hope she pays for it.  No one deserves any of what she has done.  For someone who was so welcoming and supportive in the beginning, I cannot believe it all ended like this.  I just hope agencies like this are held responsible and nobody has to go through an experience like this.  You go into surrogacy feeling secure because you have an agency and lawyers involved, but sometimes things are out of your control.  In the end, a contract means nothing.

***I want to thank you all for posting and sharing some of your thoughts and stories.  I am trying my best to speak up and defend all of those that have been hurt and effected by Allison Layton in some form or another.  I know that it is difficult to post your identity publicly on this issue, but if you really feel like your voice needs to be heard, please reach out to me through email.  I have contact info for the agent involved in this case and I really would love to get as many cases against Allison as I can, so that she can pay for what she has done.  Here is where I can be reached: mrscbutcher@gmail.com.

Thanks so much,
Ashley

  1. I feel your pain and also had my life screwed over by Allison Layton. Unlike you, my IPS were not as supportive about trying to help me retrieve my funds or get my medical bills paid. Almost 1 year after delivering beautiful healthy twins, I am left with thousands of dollars in medical bills and a nonpayment of almost 10,000 in fees and reimbursements.

  2. I have done 3 surrogacies. One with another agency and two with miracles. If I did not have complications with my last surrogacy I would go through them again. One surrogacy the clients were ok. My last was amazing. Which is because of my IPs I had I would gladly do it again. Third time was a charm. Im glad my last Surro cycle ended the way it did. It was the best experience out of all three. I have to say my IPs made it that much more extra special. There is so much negative about Miracles. I have developed a relationship with Allison and there is a lot people don't know, that I hope for her sake gets posted and every last person apologizes for the negative posts about her and miracles. She has had to deal with a lot and I hope her attorney makes some sort of statement or something when all is said and done. If you set out to help a family have a baby and that came to fruition then that in itself should give you wonderful gratitude. But I see so many people that want recognition for saying " look at me what I did. I had a baby for someone else" . That's like saying I just gave a homeless person $1,000.00 why can't you just give it and feel good about what you did? Why do you have to tell everyone I gave a thousand dollars to a homeless person. It's like the rich people who you never know they are rich since they don't brag about it. I did it too but I don't blog all over about it and brag about what I did. I did it I helped and I feel great about it and I would do it again in a flash. It was the most rewarding experience all 3 times even if the 3rd experience ended not so good for my personal health. I'd live to know the other side to every story and accusation entailed with this company. There's yours, theirs, and the middle of th road. This is not an easy field to work in I'm sure. Dealing with hormonal pregnant women has got to be in a class all of its own. I know there were many times I was not quite the pleasant Surro to work with. Now I look back and am a bit embarrassed by how I acted or over reacted at times. Not some moments I'd like on record that's for certain. All in all we got through it and healthy babies were born. That's what we all set out for and that's what we got. I couldn't be happier or more pleased. Long life and luck to you.

    1. Anonymous, I first want to point out that the purpose of having this blog is not to get some sort of recognition or medal for being a surrogate. I set out and created this blog to share my story with the world and educate those who were blind to the surrogacy world. I could care less if I ended my journey with only a handful of followers and no supporters. I just wanted to write about my thoughts and feelings; I could care less what I got out of it, which is nothing!!

      Of course Allison can be a very nice individual. In the beginning of my journey we became great friends. I originally had a transfer with my first set of IP's. And guess who those people were?!? Allison's BEST friends and I knew some major secret about their friendship that I still won't announce today no matter what Allison has done to others. So don't think I never gave Allison a chance. My IP's also became close to her and our case was specifically handled by her; we were Miracles FIRST case of triplets and she wanted us to be taken care of very well. So, we all had a great relationship in the beginning. I know Allison and her family VERY well and that is why I cannot believe it has come to this.

      I don't know how you can think it is okay for surrogates, IP's, and egg donors to walk away to what is owed to them. Yes, they got what they set out to do; have/give a baby. But that does not mean that makes it okay for an agency to withhold money!! So, it is okay that a surrogate is owed over $10,000 because she was successful with giving birth as a surrogate?!? No!! And is it okay for an agency to take money from Intended Parents trusts accounts for her own personal use (or who knows) and never return the money?? And it is okay for an egg donor to go in and donate eggs and then NEVER receive compensation for her services? You tell me how this is okay??

      No, surrogacy isn't about the money, but we have a contract and if an agency breaks that and takes money that isn't theirs, then that is ILLEGAL!!!!! I am sure there are some good cases that came out of Miracles, but life isn't perfect and I am sorry to say that your friend Allison has done illegal things and has hurt many people. You can't deny facts and that is what many people have which will definitely hold up in court.

  3. Dear Ashley,

    Thank you for the ongoing concern, let it be known that Mrs. Allison Layton monitors sites posting comments about Miracles Egg Donation......"Anonymous"ly

    In the grand scheme of what is going on, why would someone be posting positive comments about Miracles Egg Donation/Mrs. Allison Layton a week after you posted this personal blog?

    Do not be so sure that she has shut down Miracles Egg Donation and is currently running it from Idaho!

    God Bless all..............

      Very good point!! Yes, it was very odd that someone had such great things to say especially when there is proof that Allison has done the things she has done. I have heard from several people that she is still running Miracles from Idaho, which is absolutely absurd!! How can she continue to get away with this??? Thanks so much for commenting.

  4. Not only has Allison Layton stolen from surrogates and donors, she has also taken advantage of people who are already hurting tremendously -- couples who can not have children on their own. Allison's game was to tell the Intended Parents that their money would be placed in a trust fund with a respected escrow agency when in fact she kept funds in accounts controlled by her personally. When one surrogacy arrangement fell through (the surrogate was incapable of carrying but had been advertised as physically competent to carry) Allison refused to give back over $60,000 that she had demanded UP FRONT from the parents to be. The mother to be was suicidal. They couldn't start over with another agency. God bless you ladies that act as surrogates for those who cannot carry a child to term. The feelings of grief at losing pregnancy after pregnancy are overwhelming to begin with and there is much shame in having to admit you can't carry yourself. Allison is a very bad person. She preys on people who are at their most vulnerable and steals from them, all the while smiling like a psycho Barbie Doll.

  5. As if the current charges and investigation against Allison Layton/Miracles Egg Donation was not enough on her plate; she is determined to destroy her own personal life……. what must be unbeknownst to her by making horrible and untruthful comments about her children on Facebook…. thus reflecting what a terrible vindictive mother she is and continues to blame them and many others for her what her life has become..…..and the Humiliation of her own child, who does this?……Seriously Allison Layton!!!!!!!!! It amazes me that such a person is capable of doing so much destruction to themselves and others and who can’t come to the understanding that this is of her own creation and she is the only one responsible!!!!!

    This recommendation is for Allison Layton………Take Yourself to a Doctor for an Evaluation as Soon as Possible, YOU NEED TO GET HELP!

      Thanks for commenting... I really had no idea how much this all effected her children until now. I feel awful for them. I spent a lot of quality time with her oldest and I have been trying to contact her, but no luck. I hope they are holding up okay. No one deserves what Allison has done, especially her children!! I am not sure if you know the family personally or what, but if you have anything specific to share that may help this investigation, feel free to email me so I can pass the info along to the agent involved in this case. mrscbutcher@gmail.com

  8. Allison has not said anything about her kids on Facebook...that is all a lie!! I am not sure about the other allegations but I know it was actually her oldest daughter that said horrible things about her mom on FB because she had a teenager rage about not being able to do something. She was being a BRAT!!! I have never seen anything on FB that Allison has said about her kids. Those that are bringing her kids into this and saying horrible things is just as bad as what you are accusing her of doing. Leave her kids out of this!!!

    1. Hmmmm... if you think it is best to leave her kids out of this, then don't publicly call L a "brat"! And I think her kids have a lot to do with this case and the things Allison is responsible for. Her children are one of THE BEST witnesses to the horrible things she has done and I hope they find the strength and speak up. Through my experience, the oldest daughter was apart of the agency and spent more time with the company and getting to know the clients just as much as any employee. No matter if L decides to go against her mom or not, she knows the truth about her mother... the way things ended with them is VERY sad.

    1. Agreed. Allison has a good way of creating fake relationships and with lies she is able to hold onto these relationships until her "friends" finally realize how horrible she really is and the whole truth reveals itself. I'm most positive that right now in her life she has way more enemies then friends, which should be a clear indication that she has done something wrong. For someone to be on her side about this is unbelievable!!

  15. Allison Layton displays the same behaviors as narcissists and sociopaths - refusing to accept responsibility for the harm she has caused to others. Infertility is already life-destroying To be a predator who not only kicks someone when they are down but also turns around and blames the victim is psychotic. Yes, she comes off very charming and helpful at first, but remember that Jeffrey Dahmer was blonde and charming too. There is something broken and terribly wrong about this woman - the kind of person who would stomp a helpless puppy to death if it suited her mood. The people that support her just haven't gotten on her bad side yet. I pray for them. She has devastated so many people. She needs to be sent away to jail for a very long time.

  21. To be completely honest with you, IVF success rates aren't good. Although I can tell you that we did fall pregnant in our first cycle, this isn't the case for the majority of couples. The older you are, the less likely it is that you will conceive. With regard to women under thirty five the average rate of success is just under 30%. This goes straight down from there to just under one percent for women over 44 years of age. These are harsh statistics. Effectively, what this means is that more than sixty-six per cent of you will not be successful and in the scenario in which you don't have any more embryos you will be requested to withstand the expense and stress of another hormone injection cycle.

  22. I think everyone who is infertile knows the "success rates" - or lack thereof of IVF. To the people from "wecare surrogacy" your post really doesn't have anything to do with the topic other than to deflect negative attention from Allison Layton. In fact, if someone who was infertile was reading your post, they would appropriately feel that it was downright hurtful. If you are seeking to hurt people that have already been hurt so much, I would suspect you are affiliated with Allison Layton as that is a page right out of her playbook.

  23. The stories about Miracles and Allison make my stomach turn. I worked with them/her as an IP and did not have a problem, but the news of issues, lies, and bad experiences do not surprise me. I had a very uneasy feeling after my contract was signed. She became very difficult to reach and when I did get through she was not the sweet, caring person that she was before we deposited the funds into the escrow account. My IVF coordinator and my RE seemed less than pleased with my choice to go with Miracles. I am thankful that our experience was limited to my odd feeling, but I am so sorry that so many have been hurt so deeply by deplorable behavior.

  32. Miracles Egg Donation Update: Fraud Alleged in Human Eggs
    By Corinne Donnelly ⋅ May 5, 2014 ⋅ Print This Post ⋅ Post a comment
    Filed Under Allison Layton, California, fraud, human eggs, miracles egg donation, miracles egg donation and surrogacy

    I wish we could say this is surprising news, but unfortunately, as you can see in these past articles (“Serious Allegations of Misconduct Leveled Against Miracles Egg Donation and Surrogacy, Inc.” “New Allegations Against Miracles Egg Donation & Surrogacy“), we certainly saw this one coming:

    A human egg donation company used a nonexistent or unwilling donor to defraud a woman of $19,500 and used her money to pay off other prospective parents or donors it had cheated, the woman claims in court.

    Hoan Nguyen sued Allison Layton and Miracles Egg Donation, a suspended California corporation, in Maricopa County Court.

    Nguyen says in the lawsuit that she contacted Miracles in 2011 after searching online to find an egg donor, and spoke to Layton. She says Layton provided her with access to the company’s egg donor list on its website.

    Nguyen says she picked a donor – “Amy” – whom Layton claimed was in high demand. Layton immediately sent her a contract to sign to secure Amy’s eggs, Nguyen says in the complaint.
    Nguyen says that after she signed the contract and paid a $2,500 deposit, Layton claimed she needed an additional $17,000 to “ensure that the donor did not donate her eggs elsewhere.”

    Layton told her she would hold the money in trust and would refund it if the donor backed out, according to the complaint.

    Nguyen says she sent the second payment, then she tried to coordinate doctor’s appointments with the donor, but was unable to contact her.

    She claims in the lawsuit that the donor was either a fake person “or was not actually interested in donating eggs and Layton had simply used the donor’s profile to defraud plaintiff out of $19,500.”

    The complaint states: “Layton used the money to pay off other vulnerable prospective parents that she had defrauded and/or used the money to pay surrogates that she had refused to pay previously.”

    Nguyen says she requested a refund and Layton agreed to return the money, but never did.

    Nguyen seeks compensatory and punitive damages for fraud and breach of contract. She is represented by C. Adam Buck and Ben Himmelstein of the Frutkin Law Firm of Scottsdale.

    Sadly, this disaster is another example that proves researching a company thoroughly before employing its services can often go a long way.

  33. FYI, looks as though Allison Layton has been posting positive comments about Miracles Egg Donations, as if the business is still up and running, taking on new clients. This business is a suspended California corporation since 2005, see below for business license information along with a few recent reviews posted on the internet

    Entity Name: MIRACLES EGG DONATION, INC.
    Entity Number: C2760894

    We had a great experience with Miracles Egg Donation Inc a couple months ago. Allison Layton, the owner, was very nice to work with and once we chose a donor, we were assigned a case manager. They always went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable.
    They answered all my questions in a very timely manner via email or phone. They have a large selection of donors, too. Highly recommend this agency.

    I had a good experience with this agency. We did not fall pregnant but we are happy to have 9 frozen embryos to try again. Worked with Allison Layton through our entire cycle she was very easy to work with and made our experience quite easy as far as Ivf can go. I would use them again if needed. But hopefully we will have success with one of our frozen embryos.

    2. There was a comment left here this morning, immediately removed. Not sure why it was removed when they clearly felt they didn't need to hide their support of Allison because of her "belief" in the Lord and frequent church visits. I, myself, have stopped commenting here on my own blog due to the amount of messages and phone calls I have received from the media, investigators, and family members and friends of Allison. It got a bit overwhelming for me. And, YES, church friends of Allison have contacted me on more than one occasion just absolutely heart broken to find out the truth. I have even heard from her own family members…. they were shocked that they heard details of this case from my blog, which encouraged them to do their own investigation. This was deep into the trial!!! If Allison kept something so large from close family members, don't you think it would be just as easy for her to keep it from church friends?!! I don't know why people are so in denial about this situation even AFTER the trial and sentencing!!! It is clearly written out for you!!!

      Yes, "Unknown", we all are sinners and we should not judge others, however, I can speak for myself and say that my daily sins do not affect others in a way Allison's has… my sins don't ruin people's lives. My sins do not put a lifetime financial burden on people. My sins do not take away a couple's dreams of having a family. Yes, sins are sins, but please do not compare my use of taking the Lord's name in vain on occasion to her stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from innocent people who were in need and now left heartbroken. There is just absolutely no comparison!!! I am not judging… I am stating the facts.

      I too am a christian and throughout my journey with Allison I did my best to give her the benefit of the doubt before taking the action that should have taken months and months prior to her trying to screw me over. I did see the good in her. I saw a very loving and caring person. Allison became a friend to me and my family. Our husbands spent time together. We went out of town together. Her children spent time with my children. I know Allison on a very personal level (I won't expose those details here as I still respect all involved in that situation), so please do not JUDGE people here and their comments. YOU have no idea the experiences we have had with her. YOU have no idea the relationships we shared with her. I think all of us here didn't "judge" Allison until our lives got turned upside down and we became her victims. She needs to take responsibility for her actions. Just because she goes to church now it doesn't make her an innocent person!!! Yes, I believe everyone is capable of changing, but who are you to decide that she is a changed person??

      Until you have walked in the shoes of any of these victims, DO NOT come here and tell us we are all in the wrong for our opinions. Allison has not only put financial and emotional burden on many, but it has gotten to the point where she has ruined marriages because of that burden. SHE HAS RUINED LIVES!!!!!!!! That, "Unknown", is very VERY sad.

  35. I posted a couple of years ago here about how this situation makes my stomach turn. I am shocked that my experience did not turn into a heartbreaking nightmare that so many suffered at the hands of Allison. I truly know how fortunate I am. I check back here from time to time and end up searching the web for other updates. I found this tonight:

    http://www.idahostatesman.com/welcome_page/?shf=/2015/02/19/3653833_star-woman-pleads-guilty-to-california.html

    I will definitely stay turned to see what happens at her sentencing in May. I am sickened by how she has hurt so many people. I have no idea how or why she chose not to include my family as one of her victims. I hope that she gets the maximum for the heartless crimes that she has committed.

It's apparent that she doesn't to this day know how to keep quite and show some remorse to the victims, Allison enjoys bragging about having it all and posting pictures on instagram, but its at all the victims cost and she hasn't come to a realization of her actions or the consequences she will be facing soon.

    3. Allison and her family occasionally go to church with my family in Star, ID and this is just sickening. Her and her husband drive around in brand new vehicles, one being a Cadillac Escalade and have a new custom built house. Not to mention all of the designer clothing, handbags and jewelry she wears. I guess this explains how she can afford such a lavish life style when he works at a day spa!! I will pray for justice for all of the families hurt by this woman!

      Delete
    4. Her and her new husband both have criminal records now.....Kevin did a number of years in prison! I guess we will wait and see if Allisons sentence will be longer than the one her hubby served? Don't be jaded by what they have, own or drive. Keep living an honest life with you and your family and know that mentally and spiritually you are far more richer than she will EVER be! In the end we ALL meet our maker and only he can judge....some go to heaven and some go to hell.

  40. Thanks & yeah I figured as much. She's so vain and always has been. It's a shame how many people fell victim to her vortex of b.s. (They were sucked in, no doubt) What is so baffling to me and others who knew her is how in the world she was able to get into this profession with absolutely ZERO education in this field? I mean ZERO higher education whatsoever.....that in itself is scary! I guess the university of "charm" coupled with the gift to gab can get you far in this world. (But not too far) I hope the families & others involved in her heartless shenanigans find peace & that the judge gives them justice in her sentencing.

    2. And oddly enough she worked at Shelly Smiths office. I guess while working there for the short time, an evil light bulb went off in her head telling her she should start her own business! I'm sure she got her hands on some of Shellys contacts and then unprofessionally started up miracles egg donation out of her garage. The nerve! Sadly she was born with this scheming mind as it comes from her roots. True story!

  41. Anyone have any idea what kind of sentence the prosecution is recommending? My guess is she thinks since she has small children she will just get probation.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Not likely any sympathy for her small children is my guess.....I mean based on the severity of the crime, she basically was robbing people of having small children of their own buy snatching up their money! How could she even argue that her small children need her when she cheated many mothers out of giving/receiving a baby of their own?? There are millions of single parents out there raising their children.....I'm sure Kevin will get real good real quick at being Mr. Mom solo....it's the norm these days & should be no different in this situation. The fact that she kept repeating what she was doing, and not even batting an eye to stop and think she could risk going to prison and losing out on her own children's up bringing is "Her Bad"! Just my opinion though!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Seriously, Kevin will not be watching those children, the Grandparents will be doing that job, as for social media, they up and moved to Idaho to be along side their son and grandchildren. One happy family all together, Allison thought this one out way in advance, for she lives in her dream home purchased by the Layton's "Grandma and Grandpa". Allison should really stay off instagram or at least know who her friends are or Not! Thank you Allison, for always keeping us posted on instagram of all your ongoing life events. I'm sure the court would love to see how much fun you are having after your guilty plea, enjoy your freedom, that is whats left of it!!!!!

  47. Hey everyone..I am one of the egg donor victims. I was actually the only one who showed up at her last court appearance. I know it was obviously not required but i wanted to see the bitch in person so bad! As you would all guess, she showed no remorse on her face and i wanted nothing more then to jump over the wall and kill her!! I spoke with the FBI today since the Sep 28th sentencing is approaching... shes trying to lie and totally cheat me out of my money. Ive now spent my entire night going through all evidence and emails so I can prove myself! Ive never met anyone so evil and can only hope and pray that in two weeks justice will be served and we all get the money we are owed and deserve! Hope to see some of you there at the sentencing! xo

  49. HI,

    I actually spoke with Allison about a year ago and she sounded really wonderful on the phone and in follow up emails at that time. I needed to wait to go forward on this but I was finally ready and calling her yesterday at the Miracle Egg Donation telephone number in Glendora, California and got a "the phone number called is no longer in service" recording and then I thought perhaps she had a new number and so I did a Google search for her company and found this website. I must say--Wow, what a shocker!. Well, I am SO glad that I found these warnings about her inscrupulous behavior.

    Since I am readying to go forward with the egg donation and then gestational carrier choices I guess the appropriate question to ask is--

    Which companies in this field are known to be reputable and honest? It is such a large amount of money that truthfulness, and honesty are so very important.

    I would really, really appreciate it if those of you who have more knowledge of this than I do could recommend a few or even more than a few companies in the egg donation and gestational carrier business that I could have confidence in that would be reputable and honest businesses?

    I thank you all ever so much for your help!

  60. Knowing how conniving and vindictive Allison is I’m sure she is going to try and get her surrender date of October 22nd extended as long as possible and I’m sure once she is actually in prison she will do everything in her power to get released early on good behavior or transfer her sentence to house arrest after spending as little time as possible in prison. She is not the least bit sorry for what she did, she is just sorry she got caught.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Think positive thoughts, Jesus is watching and will make sure she pays for her sins. If Allison gets the surrender date pushed out, that would only make this misery pushed out further for herself; this won’t change the fact that she is still going to serve time in Federal Prison. Allison will not receive an early release, she could get time off for good behavior, but we all know if she can’t behave on the outside, what makes you think she would behave on the inside. Hopefully this will be an awakening time for her and she will learn to follow the commandments that she has broken; #5 Honor your FATHER and your mother, #7 You shall NOT commit adultery, #8 YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, #9 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, #10 You shall NOT covet

Allison places blame on her Father and his infidelities; that truly is the pot calling the kettle black!!!

    1. What a good Christian woman you are. Perhaps if you were so concerned you should go talk to your pastor and let him know you are trolling blogs and gossiping about a fellow parishioner. Nothing like grace and compassion and forgiveness. Who are you to judge? I suppose you are blameless in the eyes of the Lord? I doubt it. All sins are equal so you better be sure you are perfect before you go and start judging others. Shame on you!! I have a mind to find out the name of this church just to call the pastor and let him know that clearly his flock needs a sermon on casting stones. Love your neighbor as yourself. You might do well to pull out your bible and do a little reading there rather than this blog!

  85. To those on here defending Allison, yes she served time in prison but not the full sentence. Yes, she is ordered to pay restitution, but the victims will never receive the lump sum for what they were owed. The money will trickle back to the victims and likely never the full amount. I think people are looking for Allison to admit that she did wrong, without blaming her life circumstances. They are looking for an apology and for Allison's life to be impacted as their lives have been impacted, but instead they are seeing a return to social media as if nothing happened. That is likely the frustration. Allison has put her best image forward during this whole thing. As her close friends, maybe you see how her life has been negatively impacted or maybe she has conveyed her regrets to you, but the victims are not seeing that. They want to see admission, regret, impact, and apology. Their lives have been forever changed by being victimized during a vulnerable period of their life, maybe they want to see that Allison has changed - that she is regretful and apologetic.
