NEWPORT NEWS, Va.  (WTVR)—A Newport News man hopes for something special this Mother’s Day weekend: a mother.

No, that’s not a joke. He’s a young man who has never known the love of a mother and he hopes someone out there will take on that role in his life, reports WTKR.

The man who placed the ad is 25-year-old Christopher Page, and he’s willing to risk ridicule to put his story out there.View ad here

He hopes his risk bearing his heart in the classifieds will end with a reward of something that money cannot buy.

So far, he says he’s received prank phone calls and a meeting that ended with someone trying to attack him.
