The Friday night tradition is for all three networks to close on a heartwarming feature. Both ABC's Person of the Week and CBS' Assignment America settled on substitute parents in the fostercare system.
CBS' Steve Hartman went to Minnesota to profile Larry Scandin. Now too sick to play the role, over 14 years the former parole officer cared for more than 100 children. Now those grown children return to greet him in his wheelchair, and bring their children along too.
ABC's Charles Gibson told us about a pediatric nurse Laura Moore who found that disabled children are hard to place in foster homes. After she was profiled by People magazine she raised funds for a Dream House community in rural Georgia to take children out of hospital and place them in a homelike atmosphere pending assignment.
