WFAA Meteorologist Colleen Coyle will not be around for the February book, but she has a very good reason for skipping it.
Coyle is taking time off to adopt a child.
“We are adopting a wonderful, wonderful, amazing foster child,” Coyle says in a Facebook Live from her home. “Words can’t even describe this journey. It has been a wild ride the past several months.”
Coyle, who has been with the station for nine years, calls the adoption “A total God thing.”
“My faith is very, very important to me, and God has had his hand in all of this,” she says in the Facebook Live. “We had talked about adopting, but we didn’t think it was going to be in the cards so soon, but God had a different plan.”
This is Coyle’s first child. She is scheduled to be back on-air in early March.
Coyle’s announcement comes about three weeks after news anchor Cynthia Izaguirre returned from her own adoption leave — which turned out to take much longer than she expected it to.
Congrats to her and her husband.
