The Newscaster Who Wouldn't Give Up On A Foster Child

Apr 19, 2017-- For 25 years, retiring newscaster Gloria Campos has profiled foster children who were waiting to be adopted in the Dallas-Fort Worth area on the "Wednesday's Child" television segment at WFAA-TV. Campos estimates that, over the years, she has featured more than 350 children, 75 percent of whom were adopted thanks to her reporting. But of all those children, there was one young boy whose story she would not soon forget that of Ke'onte Cook. In 2007, Campos featured spunky, well-spoken, 8-year-old Ke'onte on her program. He was adopted shortly after the segment, but unfortunately it didn't work out and he went back into the foster care system, where he bounced from home to home. After learning about his unfortunate situation, Campos featured Ke'onte again in August 2009. This time, Carol and Scott Cook were watching, and they knew that Ke'onte was meant to be their son.
