After years of trying, a bill allowing home-schooled children to play sports at public schools may have found the conservative Virginia General Assembly it needs to become law.

Called the "Tebow Law" for the Denver Broncos quarterback who was a Florida home schooler, there are three House bills that would open public school stadiums and gyms to children who aren't enrolled there.

"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood knew she was being filmed when she beat her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, in front of MTV's film crew for the hit, TV series, "Teen Mom".

What she didn't know when she was "beating his ass", was that Child Protective Services would be watching, too. Despite being beaten on several occasions by Amber, Gary is standing by Amber and assisting her through her ordeal with the courts. According to Portwood's brother, the beaten baby daddy is the one taking care of Amber now.

How do you lose 17 pounds in one week, set a record for being the first woman to lose 100 pounds in nine weeks -- and then go home for not losing enough weight?

The 30-year-old social worker from Newport Beach had a heartbreaking history: She ended up in foster care because her mother was a homeless drug addict, and then ate her way up to nearly 500 pounds as a way to deal with the pain.

Deborah Gregory is an inspiration to many. Homeless on the sidewalks of Brooklyn at the age of three, she was separated from her mother and became a ward of the state. Now, she's a best-selling author, famous for "The Cheetah Girls" phenomenon.

Can you ever really heal from childhood trauma? No, you cannot. This is what shapes you. There is not a day that goes by I don't think about what my experiences were growing up in foster care. Thanks to therapy, I was able to do a decent job at that-but that's all-just decent. I'm still and will always remain a wounded person.

In April 2013, police officers and a social worker from Sacramento County's Child Protective Services entered the home of Anna and Alex Nikolayev and took their baby, Sammy, away from them. They had no warrant.

The secrecy surrounding CPS stems from the nature of California's juvenile dependency courts which only allow limited press access and seal all court records. While media and other interested parties can petition the court to open the records, this can be a lengthy process and by no means guarantees results. ReasonTV petitioned the court to open the records in the Nikolayev's case and, almost two months later, we have still not received a ruling from the judge.
