Kimberly Zulkowski says she wants to give all she can in the effort to find justice for her foster daughter and grandson.

In this case, "all she can" totals out to $50,000.

"I was very sad. Now I'm angry," said Zulkowski. "Gio asks every day to see pictures of his mom. Every day. He sleeps with her obituary."

"There really is not a price that you could put on Ebony's life, but it is absolutely everything that I have and I want to give everything that I have to help bring justice," said Zulkowski.ebony-taylor4

Zulkowski said Gio started school this year without his mother. He just had his first parent-teacher conferences without his mother. She mentioned the holidays and how grateful she'd be for a tightly-wrapped package of justice delivered to the courthouse, of course.
