There’re many proud fathers who support and encourage their children to be all they can possibly be. Yet, Christian Ewell, Sr. takes being a supportive, and encouraging father to new heights.

Christian Ewell, Sr. has called me every other day since November 2012 promoting his son campaigning for an interview on Halo-Orangees Blog.
