The national recognition that family connections are essential for children is applauded; though, it must come with assurances that children outside of foster care who have been removed from their parent’s home are afforded the equal protections and services received by those children who live in the foster care system.
The National Kinship Alliance for Children joins the voices of these extended families into one voice speaking out on behalf of these children. This GrandKin Guide has been written to help explain what extended families can expect when asked to care for children. Please share this with others you may know and join with us to bring our children out of the shadows and into the light. They, too, deserve our protection and our commitment.
