The editors here at Ladies’ Home Journal get to do a lot of cool things in the course of a day’s work, but here’s one of the coolest things we’ve done in a while: We helped one of our readers, Leticia Schaub, get reunited with her dad, who she hadn’t seen in 25 years. Okay, we didn’t quite pull this off on our own. Leticia, who lives in Monroe, New York, had written to us telling us how eager she was to see her father. She’d been trying to track for years, ever since he left her and her mom decades ago to remarry and start a new family. We were touched by Leticia’s story—particularly her forgiving spirit—and so passed her letter along to Troy Dunn, host of The Locator, a reality show on WE-TV. Troy worked his usual magic, and found Schaub’s dad, Gilbert Velez, living in Florida. Troy brought Gilbert to New York, and …well, if you want to see what happened, tune into the broacast tonight at 10 PM. A warning: Be sure to have a box of tissues on hand.
