Well done!

Perseverance shines through in the grandmother’s love and support following a tragic loss and also in Scott Fowler’s effort to tell the story and get it right. Well worth the listen. Inspiring.

Thumbs up 👍🏻

Why would any parent conspire to kill their unborn child? Cherika did an amazing job getting help for herself and Chancellor. **heads up** Episode 7 will make you cry. This was such a great and sad podcast. And also a very well rounded story.
