“Welcoming a child into the world is both beautiful and terrifying. And our fear was doubled as raising an African American boy presents a unique set of challenges and concerns.”

Taya drew from the strength of her husband when it came to the great responsibility of parenting their son, and tragically lost him too soon. “Not only was I a widow at the age of 35, but I was left here to parent alone. I am a widowed mother to a little black boy with special needs.”
