A Young Boy Interrupts The News Broadcast, Leaving This Anchor In Tears

K’onte is a 14-year-old boy who has not had an easy life; he spent 4  years in foster care looking for a family. A local TV news anchor had featured him in a story about adoption hoping to help find Ke’onte a home, but he had little success. Finally, after a second story on Ke’onte had been published, he was able to find a permanent home.

Ke’onte wanted to show how appreciative he was to the news anchor, WFAA’s Gloria Campos, so he planned an incredible surprise for her. During a live news broadcast Ke’onte walked onto the stage and embraced Gloria. It was a moment of joy and shock that left her in tears in front of countless viewers.

According to the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, there are almost 400 thousand children in the foster care system in the United States alone. Although around 100 thousand of these children are eligible for adoption, about 30% will wait over 3 years before they finally find a home. Ke’onte’s story is just one of the hundreds of thousand stories of children affected by the foster care system.

We all are ecstatic that Ke’onte was able to find a home. If this video touched you like it touched us, make sure to share it with your friends. It’s always nice to know there are good people working to make the world a better place.
