“And we are very, very diligent about not having an agenda to say if it were positive or negative.”One of the families profiled on the series is the Koloffs.
He tells Kolby she has to run it by her mom, Victoria, who turns out to be the real challenge. She also works at a Christian "crisis pregnancy center" and is a Christian radio talk show host.
