Tuesday’ Child is an award winning news segment featured on WJAR-Channel 10. Adoption Rhode Island partners with Channel 10 to create and produce features of children waiting to be adopted as well as stories about foster care and adoption. This partnership has provided enormous visibility for children who would otherwise not have a voice. Hundreds of inquiries about a child or the adoption process occur because of the partnership. The segment airs on Tuesdays during noon and 5:30 shows.
Award-winning journalist Patrice Wood has been delivering the news to Southern New England on WJAR-TV, Channel 10, since February, 1980, making her the longest-serving female newscaster in Rhode Island television history. Her Tuesday’s Child reports, profiling hundreds of foster children, have helped to bring visibility to hundreds of children and assisted in the adoption of many boys and girls she has featured since 2004, according to Adoption Rhode Island. In fact, Wood says that working with Adoption Rhode Island to help children find permanency and stability is one of the most rewarding experiences in her life. (link to Patrice bio)
