(CBS 11 News) DALLAS A judge said he was too overweight to be a father. But thanks to a Dallas hospital, a Missouri dad is on his way to being half the man he is now.
When Gary Stocklaufer goes back to court, he’ll be a couple hundred pounds lighter, and he believes that should be enough to bring his foster son home.
“They have no excuse,” said Stocklaufer. “In two and a half months, loosing 83 pounds on my own, that’s pretty good; that’s determination.”
The determination has to do with a 4-month-old little boy nicknamed Baby Max.
With the help of gastric bypass surgery, Stocklaufer will more than likely drop another 100 pounds in the next month.
