Waiting Child Reunion

Posted: Updated:

If you were ever featured on NewsChannel 8's "Waiting Child" adoption program, you're invited to a "Waiting Child Reunion".  We'd love to get everyone together to celebrate the joy of adoption!

Last October marked the beginning of the 30th anniversary for NewsChannel 8's adoption program, "Waiting Child."  Former anchor, Bob Hower, started "Waiting Child" with a mission to help hard to place and special needs children find adoptive homes. The children are in permanent custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.  They were removed from their biological homes because of abuse or severe neglect.

Since 1990, I've had the privilege of carrying on the Waiting Child tradition, producing and hosting our weekly reports.  It's estimated that some 2,500 children have been featured, resulting in more than 4,000 adoptions.  That's because only one family can adopt the child or children featured on "Waiting Child", but our program helps recruit other families who eventually adopt through DHS.

Now, we would love to hear from former "Waiting Children."  A "waiting Child" reunion is planned for May... and you are invited to be part of it! We'd love to hear about your life today. Perhaps, you even have children of your own.

If you would like to be part of our Waiting Child reunion, please contact me at  clambert@ktul.com.  Or, you can call and leave a message.  My phone number is 918-445-9373.
 
Make this a "Waiting Child" reunion to remember!
