Dorothy B. Hicks was born on February 20, 1947 in Paris, Texas to Dennis and Opal Benson. Dorothy met, fell in love and married Kenneth Hicks, Sr. which was the beginning of a love affair that lasted for 38 beautiful years. Through this union eight children were blessed to call Kenneth and Dorothy mom and dad. Kenneth and Dorothy later became foster parents to countless children over a 20 year span. Even though these children were not their children by birth, they were blessed to call Kenneth and Dorothy mom and dad.
