Red Magazine’s Hot Woman of the Year: Creative
WHERE WOMEN ARE KINGS
Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties – and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son.
Elijah’s birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it’s his fault they can’t be together.
