Chancellor Lee Adams is 12 years old now and suffers from cerebral palsy, but is alive and well thanks in large part to the care of his grandmother Saundra Adams.
In June I drove to Charlotte to meet a boy who should have been dead. And if not dead, at least miserable. The boy had permanent brain damage. He could barely walk. He could say only one or two words at a time. He was 12 years old, and his grandmother still fed him by hand. His mother was dead. His father was in prison for arranging her murder.
The boy was Chancellor Lee Adams, son of Cherica Adams and Rae Carruth. You may have heard the story. Thirteen years ago, when Carruth was a wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers, he and Adams had a short-lived romance. When she told him she was pregnant, he told her to get an abortion. When she refused, he paid a two-bit criminal to beat her up and cause a miscarriage. When the two-bit criminal failed to do the job, Carruth raised the stakes: he wanted both mother and baby killed.
The operation did not go as planned. Cherica Adams was struck by four bullets, but she survived long enough to make the 911 call that implicated Carruth and eventually sent him to prison. And although the baby’s brain was deprived of oxygen in the aftermath of the shooting, resulting in cerebral palsy, he was born alive.
