"Good thing she championed abortion! Wouldnt want those poor, brown babies!" Please just give me the language and don't make heroes out of baby killers like Linda and Planned Parenthood.

Wow, what a story! I'd heard of this but never looked into the details and specifics .. what an intense happening, for the children and for the parents, and even for the foster families. Thank you for sharing this story.

Much too slow, and half of it is in Americanglish, so can't get in the zone for Spanish. I'd say it's more A1 or A2 than intermediate. However, the main reason I gave up after the second episode, was because the cringey disneyfied stories aren't at all interesting.
