Meredith Vieira Show gives award to single man who adopts children
The Meredith Vieira Show on Friday, Nov. 11, featured an interesting client of her “$10K A Day” offer, the last day it ran (best link). The award went to a Pittsburgh police officer, associated with a group called “Steel City Boxing”, who said that he had always been single and had thought he would remain an unattached bachelor. He worked with underprivileged young men in a boxing club (which would not be my own cup of tea), a bit like a “foxcatcher” (although that refers to wrestling). With two of them (white) he made home visits at some point and learned that they were in dire straits with single parents. He finally adopted them as a single dad. He did say he had gone from being a bachelor to a “responsible family man”, a phrase I personally took as a little off-putting. I didn’t catch the name and it isn’t on the website. The presentation did not mention sexual orientation or why he had never married.
