This is a reality show on television that chronicles how a comedian by the name Kym Whitley suddenly found herself an adoptive mother, when she got a call from the hospital where a young troubled girl she had mentored had given birth and absconded, leaving Kym's address as contact. Kym, who is a single lady, along with her friends, is thrown into raising this boy by the name Joshua. They try as best as they know how sometimes exhibiting ignorance in the process. Although two men, Rodney and Wendell, are particularly prominent as father figures in the boy's life, their different personalities and conflict of opinions on the right way to raise Joshua brings a lot of comical approach to the whole process. The most important lesson from this show is how lucky this boy is to have had Kym mentor his biological mother initially, which made it easier for him to find a loving and warm home almost immediately his mother abandoned him. The show focuses on how Kym is juggling work with dating and raising the boy.
