Tonight's special guest is Melora Vogel from Punta Gorda, Florida, grandparent,  advocate and co-author (with her husband, Dave) of 'Protecting TROY: Breaking the Chain of Child Abuse', a shocking personal story about two caring grandparents who find themselves in the midst of a custody battle concerning their two-year-old grandson, Troy (from Georgia), who they believed had been neglected his mother. “Before writing this book," they say, "we lived comfortably. We were middle-aged, middle-class of the United States with a small family-owned business. For twenty years, we worked in the same industry, with the primary focus of helping underprivileged children." One morning they got some bad news about their grandson, Troy, and that marked the beginning of the end of their comfortable reality, and the starting point of our journey into changing the systemic failures and the cyclical problems they encountered. "We could think of no better way to share how we came to this point than by taking you through our unbelievable story exactly as it unfolded," they explain, "with us as the protagonists. In doing so, our hope is that our story will change your life as it has ours. This is a true story, though some names have been changed.” Throughout the book, Dave and Melora often play the role of detectives, who are driven to chase clues and find evidence to support their hunches to prove their case to a crooked judge. For those who are facing a similar situation to the one the Vogels found themselves in, this book may provide a pathway to keep fighting for justice.
