Regina Calcaterra (R) is the bestselling author of Etched in Sand, the memoir of her childhood growing up in numerous foster homes, homeless shelters, and on the streets-all the while trying to protect and keep her siblings together.

Rosie Maloney (L) is a graduate of Idaho State University at Pocatello with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and an associate degree in criminal justice.
