My name is Kimberly Holden, and when I was a little girl, I always knew I wanted to adopt. Three of my aunts opened their hearts and homes to children who weren’t biologically theirs, and that sparked something in my heart that stayed with me up into adulthood. My Aunt Gloria (who we all called Mama) was my biggest inspiration, and right before she passed away, I whispered in her ear, ‘Mama, I’m going to be a foster mom.’

She is going to be a good momma and family that’s all that matters. Love don’t know color. My stepdaughter is best thing that’s happen to me. She and her momma accept me and I’m white.


I’m white and I used to babysit my ex-husbands coworkers grand daughter. She was black. She was about 3 years old at the time. When I took her with me to the grocery store or the shopping mall people would say terrible snide comments to me and her both. She was so young she had no idea what this was about. I got to the point where we would stay home and not go out. It was a shame.
