January '05- "Roots and Branches" debuts on television!
- WRAZ-TV/FOX 50, a Raleigh, North Carolina FOX television affiliate, boycotted its own network airing of the reality adoption show "Who's Your Daddy" after being inundated with e-mail and negative reaction to promotions of "Daddy" that distastefully portrayed the reunion of an adoptee with her biological father for prize money. Instead, "Roots and Branches"- the independent adoption film that won the heart of WRAZ-TV's station manager Tommy Schenck, enjoyed its television broadcast debut in place of "Daddy" on the North Carolina FOX station on January 3,2005. News of this controversy was reported all over the world. (FOX controversy) Unlike the sensational stories often reported on by the media, "Roots and Branches" is an honest and honorable look at the ordinary and extraordinary faces and voices of adoption, and will likely touch your heart too!
