During a WFAA newscast last Wednesday, retiring anchor Gloria Campos received a special surprise.
Back in 1989, Campos took over “Wednesday’s Child,” a weekly segment in which she featured children in foster care who were waiting to be adopted, ABC News reported. 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.
In 2007, she told the story of Ke’onte Cook, then 8 years old. Ke’onte was adopted after the segment, but, unfortunately, the adoption ultimately failed, according to WFAA.
Two years later, after Ke’onte had been moved in and out of different homes, Campos did another story on him, hoping this time would be different.
