A news anchor had been doing a ‘Wednesday’s Child’ weekly segment for many years, and upon her retirement was remembering one little boy who had been difficult to place, but had finally found a home with a wonderful, loving family.
During her 25-year run of the feature, she shared the stories of some 350 children and 75 percent of them found adoptive families, according to the outlet.
Via Fox 4 News:
According to the Huffington Post, the segment, which was taken over by anchor Gloria Campos in 1989, featured children who had been in foster care and were looking to be placed in permanent homes.
Back in 2007 she featured the story of Ke’onte Cook who was eight-years-old at the time. The first home she was able to get him placed in didn’t work out, so two years later she gave him another opportunity to be a part of the segment.
The now 14-year-old Cook was adopted and has been living happily with those parents, Carol and Scott Cook, ever since. He surprised the anchor by walking on the set to give her an on-air special thank you.
