However, Boos found out something he had in common with his birth father one day a few years ago. During a work trip to Georgia from Illinois, his adoptive dad decided to accompany him. And one night during the journey, he would make a surprising admission.
From a young age Boos had wanted to become a truck driver. And the man who raised him told him it must have been in his blood. His biological dad had also been a trucker, he said.
The news interested Boos – but didn’t think much more of it. “I said, ‘I probably met my father when I was trucking on the road,’” he told the Washington Post. “I probably met him at a truck stop and didn’t know it. It wasn’t something I was hell-bent on figuring out.”
