I remember hearing about Cherica Adams's death over a decade ago and the birth of her son, who has been raised by Cherica's mother Saundra since then. After reading the article about Chancellor and Saundra as Rae Carruth's release date draws near, I couldn't help but get emotional. As the mother of two boys with disabilities, I know all too well the joy and pain that comes with the territory. I realized, too, how truly blessed I am that my children are able to do so many things that other children are not. I count my blessings and, after reading this article, promise to focus more on the positives and less on the negatives.
