A African American Foster and Adoptive Mom and her White Son, Family, Foster Care, Adoption, Transracial - In My Shoes Podcast
REWIND! He Is White, I am Black and I am His Mom
It's another REWIND episode with foster and adoptive mom Keia Jones-Baldwin. She and her husband have four children including a son who is White.
In this episode she talks about the crazy questions she's received over the years, including people calling the police when they are convinced that she must have kidnapped her baby boy.
May is Foster Care Awareness Month and this conversation with Keia is the perfect way to celebrate that.

ALSO, don't forget you can still help me celebrate my birthday by donating to the non-profit arm of IMS and help us give away journals FREE to girls and women of color.
About the Podcast
In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.
Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
