More love to give
“We had both been thinking about it,” says Kim when asked about her and her husband’s decision to adopt a foster child. “I have two children—21 and 25—and a 14-year-old stepdaughter, but we both felt in our hearts that we had more love to give.”
That’s when an introspection of Kim and her husband’s home, their family and their relationships began. Together, they researched the adoption process, found an adoption agency and had many thoughtful discussions with their family.

When I began working to make boards more gender diverse in 2001, the percentage of women on the boards of large companies in the United States was around 12 percent. By 2011, women had gained a few more seats at the table, and by 2016 women held 21 percent of board seats at Fortune 500 companies. At this rate of progress — less than one percent increase per year — it will be three more decades before big companies’ boards achieve gender parity. And that, sadly, is the good news.
