I write a blog for a local non-profit organization that fulfils the requests of area children in foster care. I thought it would make a nice blog entry to write about skaters who were either adopted, fostered (perhaps by a family member) or grew up in a single parent household. I'd like to focus on American skaters, and use Nationals as a tie in. So far I have Scott Hamilton, Peter and Kitty Carruthers, Ann Patrice McDonough and Aaron Parchem, all of whom were adopted, and Debi Thomas, whose parents were divorced. If anyone here can come up with other possibilities, I'd be very grateful. I'll research any skaters you list, so you can put down people you think might fall into the categories but you aren't certain (I had to eliminate several skaters I'd thought of because it turned out they didn't grow up in single parent households). If you want to do your own research, that's great too. Thanks to this People Magazine article, I learned Scott Hamilton and Kitty Carruthers used to date!
