Boy who "divorced" father meets Massachusetts governor
A 14-year-old boy who successfully went to court to sever ties with the father serving time for murdering his mother skipped school today. But he doesn't think his government teacher will mind. Patrick Holland and his guardian had a private meeting with Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at the Statehouse. Patrick says they talked about school, music -- and the memory of Patrick's mom, Elizabeth, who was killed in 1998. Romney gave Patrick an autographed copy of his book and a special coin from the Salt Lake Olympics. Patrick was eight years old the night his father fatally shot his mother at their home in Quincy, Massachusetts. Through his spokeswoman, Romney said he was honored to welcome Patrick to his office. The boy now lives with his legal guardians in New Hampshire, who plan to adopt him.
