Interesting

The stories of survivors are interesting and really eye opening. I would have liked to hear some stories from parents and how the family worked out the trauma after the child came home.

Good content but WAY to many ads.

Interesting stories but the amount of ads made it hard to want to keep listening.

HopenHaven ,

Very well done!

I worked in a Utah RTC for 4 years in the academic program. Many of these stories resignate with me and it's heartbreaking. I knew so little of the things that took place on the business side but this helps it all make sence of how things were done they way they were. It's sickening and wrong. Many of these things are STILL happening daily to kids.
