"I don't think being a mother is just a biological thing. I think being a mother is loving and caring for others," says Kim Roberts, owner of Bama Bed and Breakfast in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. "So, the mothering just continues. And I think that's appropriate."
You could say the Roberts family is committed to providing a unique and comfortable experience to all of their guests - and you'd be right. Even before opening their doors as a bed and breakfast, the family had a habit of welcoming others into their circle. They fostered 25 children over the years and adopted three of them while staying involved with their local community's Foreign Language Institution. It's not so different from having guests come and go.
