A North Carolina mom says she gets stares and has had the police called on her twice after the adoption of a white baby.
Keia Jones-Baldwin and her husband Richardro are foster parents who have adopted several children but when she adopted 1-year-old Princeton, people felt like she had kidnapped the young child.

Jones-Baldwin revealed that after suffering a flat tire in front of a man’s home and doing a Western-style photoshoot with her family in Tennessee, police were called by a man and photographer who thought Keia had kidnapped the child.
Princeton, who weighed 1 pound at birth due to his mother being addicted to drugs, instantly took over Keia’s heart, “I don’t look at family as blood,” Keia said. “I look at family as love. When Princeton came into our lives, he came into our hearts.”
