Ahead of Rae Carruth’s release from prison, Saundra Adams says she’s forgiven him


(off camera) “Now what do you call your grandmother?” G-Mom. (off camera) “And what do you call your mother?” Mommy Angel. “Mommy Angel?” Yeah.
“Can you say it again?” Mommy Angel.
“Mommy Angel, that’s right.” I’m raising Rae Carruth’s son. And I don’t believe that there’s any way that I
could hate a part of Chancellor and say that I love him unconditionally.
I just, you can’t do that. So to love him unconditionally will be
to love every part of Chancellor, and Rae Carruth is a part of Chancellor. Chancellor does not think he’s disabled.
He is abled differently. So he does not conduct himself like a helpless person. That strong, athletic ability that Chancellor has and he displays when he’s
doing his therapy — and it’s not even just therapy, it’s the day-to-day tasks that
we take so much for granted that he has to put so much effort into doing. I see
Cherica coming through. That fight and that determination. And I must give credit to Rae Carruth because I think Rae has some of those same qualities
because you couldn’t make it to the NFL just being mediocre. I’m almost grateful that it happened
because it has shown me a part of me that I didn’t know lived in there.
I am bigger than I thought I was. I am more faithful than I thought I was. I’m more loving and compassionate than I ever thought I could be. And for that I
really have Rae Carruth to thank. Van Brett Watkins was the only one of
the four that actually reached out to me to ask for some forgiveness in the
beginning. And he expressed remorse, and I believed him.
Van Brett Watkins sent me a letter, expressing that, and I did write back to
him and it’s dated April 18th, 2003. And I said to him: “Mr. Watkins,
you know I am suffering. Because of your actions, I will never be able to hold my
beautiful daughter Cherica again. Because of your actions,
my grandson Chancellor cannot do the simplest things like call me ‘grandmommy’
or play ball with the other children. But despite my grief, I want you to know that
I have forgiven you. I know you are suffering too for the horrible choice
you made that day. I want you to know that you will always be in my thoughts
and prayers, and I wish you peace. Saundra Adams”

  1. I'm so moved by the power of her faith… I could learn a few things from Chance such determination and such a giving heart from Mrs. Adams God Bless you…. God makes appointments

  2. If this isn’t a true lesson in forgiveness I don’t know what is. Can’t even lie to myself and say I’d be so forgiving. What a woman 💕 #GodBlessHerAndThatSweetBoy

  3. This, indeed, is a very tear-jerking video. I've always told my own son (who is now an adult) that your actions not only affect you, but other people that you may not even know. All because the child's father did not want to be tied down with a child, he put a "hit" out on that beautiful girl's life. All he had to do was just break up with her and just be with whatever whore he wanted! But I have to give props to the grandmother for being such a Godly woman and for being so forgiving. It REALLY takes a STRONG Christian to bear that kind of fruit…

  4. Im in tears… His mother is his Angel in Heaven, his grandmother is his Angel on earth. God Bless💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  5. This was one of the saddest, most heart wrenching stories I had ever seen when I first heard about it 20 years ago. It literally brings tears to my eyes & I’m a very cynical person. As far as I’m concerned, Rae Carruth should have NEVER made it out of prison ALIVE…

  6. 321 the mug shot looks a little bit like Drake I'm very confused can somebody please help me find myself with this clip

  7. I really couldn't find the words for this. It takes special people to care for special people. This was one of the 'Love cares more for others than for self' truths…

  8. I would definitely have to say THANK YOU to Miss Adams for showing all of us the spirit if the true & living God. I am so horrified by the tragic event, but you truely are a vessel of light in this world. May God continue to strengthen you & guide you every step of the way.

  9. Besides helping the poor i took would give to this lady if I win the lottery….what happens to any woman that gets with Rae,would he kill her too…would a woman even date him?

  10. You inspire me a lot kid. You are a very handsome kid. I love your eyes. I hope someday you will be a motivational speaker. I’m so sorry that your beautiful mum is gone to soon. I hate to say this but forgive your freaking evil monster father for what he did to you and your mum. I am an Asian woman who got cheated and I am lucky to be alive for what I have been thru. I had promised god that I will die alone and always be alone. I’m not one of those women who are so desperate to just take any man in my own home that I bought in my own energy. My life now is so peaceful and so serene. Cheating really poisons everything and also it leads to killing. Look at the Watts family in Colorado that was so sick and sad, and there’s many many many more cheaters out there that will kill there spouses and children and it will continue it will not stop it will not the family killing will never stop. Evil monster pedophile killers, fathers and mothers they are everywhere. It will not stop. Mark my word. Granny you deserve an award 🥇 you’re doing an awesome job raising that child.

  11. So sad what happened to her and the son. he does not deserve to see his son. why so he can feel better? I hope nothing happens to his grandmother cause who will be able to be their for him like she has been? To the grandmother, what an amazing human. please stop thanking the father. I don't get it. you have been there for all of it. Remember a leopard never changes his spots. he will get in another relationship and be nice at first like most abusive men are than the put does come and u cry and that they start pulling the hair and he will snap ags

  12. THAT WAS THE WORST DAY OF RAR CARRUTH LIFE THAT'S ONE DAY HE WANT'S BACK THE BOY WAS ABOUT TO SIGN A BIG ASS CONTRACT HE COULD OF TAKIN CARE OF BOY AND THE MOTHER. SOMEBODY GAVE HIM SOME WRONG INFORMATION ABOUT HOW FATHER HOOD GOES. HELLGANG 33RD STREET

  13. Blessings abound you Sandra Adams
    Praise GOD for people like us
    Who forgives what most pride themselves on holding on to :
    The right to remain angry & defiant to love their petpertrator(s)

    Amen

  14. Blessings to Ms. Adams and her grandchild. GLORY BE TO GOD for taking what the enemy meant for harm and turning it into something for good.

  15. God bless Sandra she's an extraordinary soul! I commend her for being able to forgive and not be bitter for her sake and her grandsons sake!!

  16. WHY YOU GUYS DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT, IF THE LAWS GIVES A FEMALE THE CHOICE TO OVERRIDE A MALES WISHES THE LAW SHOULD ADVISE HER THAT THIS DECISION COMES WITH ZERO OBLIGATIONS OF THE FATHER.

  17. What an amazing woman to take such a great loss and tragedy and find the good in an impossible situation GOD BLESS HER!!!! Thank God that sweet boy has her in his life!!! My prayers go out to them both

  18. Grandmother you are an amazing person. You will have nothing but God's blessings for what you have done and what you continue to do. Forgiveness is what we need more of. Including myself.

  19. OMG IM BALLING MY EYES OUT THIS STORY IS VERY HEARTBREAKING. BUT YET AN INSPIRATIONAL STORY AT THE SAME TIME RAE DOES NOT DESERVE TO SEE THIS BOY HE DIDNT WANT HIM BAK THEN HE WANTED HIM KILLED TO EACH IS OWN BUT I PERSONALLY WOULD NOT TRUST HIM HELL NAW WHOS TO SAY HE WONT HURT THIS CHILD NO WAY. I WLD NOT LET HIM BE PART OF HIS LIFE NEVER!!!! HE LOST THAT WEN HE KILLED UR DAUGHTER UR GRANDSONS MOTHER FUK THAT THIS BOY IS HAPPY GRANDMA DID AN AMAZING JON RAISING HIM AND THIS POOR BOY DNT NEED TO DEAL WITH THAT JUS SAYING I WLD DEF NOT TRUST RAE WITH THAT NOY HELL NO

  20. Wow thank Rae Carruth for nothing Rea can kick rocks with his bare feet! He will reap what he has sown! Imagine the child's ability if his father didn't do this to him and his mother. Lord forgive me for not being a sweet and open-minded as the grandmother

  21. This makes me cry. Is paying child support really that horrible that you would need to murder the mother of your child and the baby or have the baby suffer?

  22. She's done an amazing job raising him. For Rae to have the audacity to ask for custody is a freaking joke. 😕

  23. His son is so strong and awesome. I know Rae looks at this video and is so shamed by what he did to his lookalike son. He was worried money and paying for this beautiful soul, but give the chance this young man would have been the light of his life and his mini me. 18 years in jail was not enough time for this evil man.

  24. If you men feel so strongly about NOT being a parent and having choices about birthing a child, here is a choice: stop phucking be celibate!
