Social worker Connie Going had already tried twice to place Taylor Diaz with a family, and both times they brought the boy back. Although Going had always believed there was a home for him somewhere, she refused to send him to another.
Going had a simple philosophy when it came to her career in social work. “Every child is adoptable. There’s a family for every child,” she told CBS News. The 50-year-old had proven it by placing more than 1,000 children with families in Tampa Bay, Florida.
