FROM THIS EPISODE

Stories where kids actually want their parents to look out for them. When Gene Cheek was twelve, his mom was forced to make an impossible choice: give him away to foster care ... or give away his baby brother. Gene volunteered. This had some complicated consequences. His book is called The Color of Love: A Mother's Choice in the Jim Crow South. Plus a story from Mortified about a boy who's not getting enough attention from his parents. He decides to go over their heads: to his grandma.
