This photo on Channel 2 anchor Frank Sommerville’s Facebook wall is generating a lot of interest. It shows him patiently taking out the braids in his daughter’s hair. The SFGate’s Mommy Files writes:
The photo resonated with Sommerville’s fans because it captured one of those daily moments that parents often come to value most — and it showed a white father bonding with his black daughter.
Frank’s daughter Callie is adopted and he says, “If someone were to ask me what I am most proud of in my life it is that we adopted Callie. Every day I can see the difference we made in her life, and everyday I experience the difference she’s made in ours.”
