Savannah Chrisley is adjusting to a new life with her brother Grayson and sister Chloe, without parents..
She revealed that she is in a “hard situation” trying to support siblings, Grayson, 16, and Chloe, 10.
She admitted “I’m helping to guide and take care of Chloe and Grayson through this time,” added “And I’m having to guide them through this process as I’m trying to guide myself through this process too which is very, very difficult to do.”
She continued “I’m trying to stand strong till last and not break and be strong just for them ,So they can feel comfortable enough to break down, and it’s tough.”
While Savannah shared an update on how Grayson is doing amid her parents’ legal troubles.
She wrote “Grayson is 16 years old, [and] there’s so much growth going on with him right now, And it breaks my heart to know that my parents are missing out on that.”
She continued, “Last night, Gray had a bad breakdown, and he’s trying to process my parents and the situation that they’re in and how that’s not the image that he wants to have of them both.”
Savannah told Chloe is also struggling to adjust in life with her parents behind bars. (Todd, 53, and Julie, 50, previously adopted son Kyle Chrisley’s daughter Chloe in 2016 and consider her to be their kid.)
She explained “Chloe 10 years old is trying to process them being gone and missing her mom badly, We were driving down the road the other day, and Chloe had much bad anger towards the situation and she just said, ‘Why? They’re not bad people at all, they don’t belong there.'”
She continued, “She looked at me with tears and just rolling down her face and said, ‘Guess what? I pray all the time about it. I pray for mom and dad to get home back, I pray all day and guess what Sassy? Nothing happens – it doesn’t work for me.’ And when a 10-year-old says to you like that, how do you respond?”
They were sentenced in November after a jury convicted the couple in June of a multimillion-dollar bank fraud and tax evasion scheme. Both Todd and Julie have also been ordered to serve an additional 16 months of probation in prision following their release from prison.
Savannah told that “it’s tough when your norm is no longer your norm.”

She shared “What I’ve known for 25 years, my parents are gone and it’s hard, and My dad is my best friend and I don’t just get to pick up the phone and call him. I don’t get to send him funny texts when something stupid or bad happens in my life … it feels like a slow death because in a way it is grief because I’m grieving my normal, I’m grieving the loss of my parents and what I know i don’t know.”
