As we celebrate the first 10 years of KITS, we are thrilled to give honor where honor is due! ⠀
Meet Regina Louise ( @therealreginalouise ): the inspiration of the Lifetime film shining the light on the foster care system, I AM SOMEBODY'S CHILD: THE REGINA LOUISE STORY. Regina Louise lived in over 30 foster homes, group homes and psychiatric facilities before age 18. Louise initially bonded with Jeanne Kerr, who worked as a nurse at the shelter. Kerr expressed a willingness to adopt Louise, but a court denied her petition. Decades later, at the age of 41, Regina Louise was finally adopted; in the same courthouse they had been previously denied. Author, advocate and motivational speaker; Louise's message that LOVE IS NEVER WASTED resonates with audiences everywhere.⠀
We're so, so grateful Regina Louise will be joining us at the KITS Awards on November 2nd!!! Her resilience and fortitude is an inspiration to all of us!
