Fenn does a majestic job of showing these two phenomenal athletes and telling their stories.

...
Lisa Fenn produced human-interest features for ESPN for over a decade, but one particular story came into her life and never left. After seeing a newspaper image of two young wrestlers from one of Cleveland's tougher public high schools, Lisa followed a hunch and flew back to her hometown to meet the boys that very day. What she found caused her spirit both to sink and to soar.
...
The three formed a surprising and meaningful connection-and once the television story ended, Lisa realized she couldn't just walk away.
Though Leroy's and Dartanyon's futures were limited by abject poverty, Lisa resolved to give them the chance she knew they deserved. She worked tirelessly to see them through school and athletic pursuits, broken hearts, phantom limbs, and the bewildering obstacles that, at every turn, tested their individual strengths even while strengthening the bonds between them.

Lisa Fenn Bio
...
An Edward R. Murrow and six-time Emmy Award-winning feature producer with ESPN for 13 years, Lisa Fenn reported on major league sports interviewing every big name in the game before meeting two inspiring young boys in 2009 that changed her life - and theirs - forever.
...
A native raised on the "other side" of Cleveland, Lisa submerged herself in a world of struggle and poverty that she had been protected from her whole life. Over the course of five months, she became an integral part of the boys' lives - tagging along to their classes, practices and team bus rides. Leroy and Dartanyon graciously accepted Lisa, and Lisa's role in their lives grew from reporter to mother.
...
Up next, Lisa will release her memoir about the experience, titled Carry On.
...
A sought-after presenter, Fenn speaks with warmth and candor about her experiences with Leroy, Dartanyon, poverty and transracial adoption in addition to her Christian faith and its relevancy in both her media career and daily life.
...
Lisa has since moved from Cleveland and now resides in Boston with her husband and two young children.
...
While there is nothing about Leroy, Dartanyon and Lisa that landed itself to an obvious bond, they forged community within each other.
...
Lisa describes their ongoing journey together with Dartanyon, now a Paralympic bronze medalist, and Leroy, a college graduate.
