I think it’s because I come from a huge family that I don’t feel the need to have children. I’ve always had kids to love and to cuddle. When I get tired of them, I take them back home.”  She has nine siblings. Kim and her husband Kevin are authors of a series of books for children “Amy Hodgepodge” which deals with a child book character who is multiracial. Kim stated “We have about 28 nieces and nephews, and lots of them are interracial children, and we wanted them to see images of themselves reflected back in literature in a positive way.” The book, Amy Hodgepodge, is about a multiracial girl’s experience of adjusting to public school after being homeschooled. Kim and her husband want to help young people embrace diversity by showing multiracial children characters that they can identify with.
