I don't know how many of you have seen the show, "The Locator". The host, Troy Dunn, reunites families that have been separated. I have watched several episodes and have enjoyed seeing families be reunited. He reunites children with birth mothers, or siblings with brothers or sisters they didn't know they had.
As I have watched his show, I have noticed that he puts great emphasis on families. He has 7 children of his own. He often shows them on his show, and sometimes they help him in his searches. His teenage son once asked him about a person he was searching for. When his Dad gave him the name, the young man did a "Myspace" search and found the person immediately! Troy Dunn always focuses on the importance of family. Today I decided to do a search about him, and I found out that he is LDS. I had suspected that, but it was interesting to find out. Also I found out he is a Bishop. I have noticed that when he meets the people, he is very careful to assess their feelings and give them information in small chunks so that he won't overwhelm them.
If you haven't seen the show, grab a box of kleenex. I can't usually get through an episode without tearing up. It doesn't always turn out happy, but it is surprising how many people are willing to open up their hearts and lives to family members they never knew existed.
