Cathy D. Kirkland said of her son, conceived in rape:
“He restored my faith in life and gave me a reason to get up in the morning…I have a lot of fun with people who want to know what race Jonathan is: I say human… Or when they ask what does his dad do, I say he’s an apprentice astronaut or a cowboy. At least they don’t come back asking me silly questions again.”
