Have you seen this?

Ke’onte is a fourteen year old adventurer looking for a forever family. He was featured on the local Wednesday’s Child when he was in foster care at age 8. Because of Wednesday’s Child, he was adopted. However, it was short lived when the adoption failed and was a negative experience.

Ke’onte is resilient. He plugged along and was featured again. This time, the Cook family recognized him immediately as the child they had been looking for. They knew right away that they belong together. Ke’onte loves his parents as much as they love him.

The surprise ending of this video will leave you in tears.
