It is unknown why Mike thought adopting thirteen girls of similar age was a good idea for a single man. Especially one who is a tobacco company advertising executive.
After an incident of school violence involving his daughter, Joanie, Mike moved himself and his thirteen teenage daughters to Thailand, a move that is nothing but questionable, as Thailand is known to have a serious history with trafficked underage prostitution. However, according to all known accounts, none of the Bovein girls fell into that lifestyle, and all have since returned to America.
The current whereabouts of Mike Bovein are unknown.
