In 2007, when Ke’onte was just 8 years old, TV anchor Gloria Campos featured him as a Wednesday’s Child hoping he would be adopted.
Although he was adopted by a family, that adoption failed, so Gloria did another report on Ke’onte two years later in the hope the second time around would be the charm.
When Carol and Scott Cook saw the video, they knew Ke’onte was their son.
Now, at the age of 14, Ke’onte is full of life and laughter due to his parents and the persistence of Campos. Ke’onte says: “If someone said I offer you money for your parents, I’d say heck no. They’re worth more than you’ve got.”
As TV anchor Campos is doing a live follow-up story on Ke’onte, she has a surprise visitor come into the studio.
Watch the video to see what happens—I’m sure your heart will be moved.
