What Happens When Black Parents Adopt a White Child?

Meet Keia Jones-Baldwin, a foster parent and adoptive mom. Listen to her tell her family's story of accusations, questions and strange looks as they raise their children, particularly their youngest son who is White.

Keia and her family have had to answer multiple questions about whether or not they kidnapped him or if she is her son's nanny. It's a powerful discussion about race, adoption and the hurdles we still have to deal with in society when all a family wants to do is love a child.
