A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children

Thanks to all of you for patience as Tita learns the publishing game. It looks like the book, A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children - for Grandparents and Other Relatives as Parents, will be ready for distribution in February! Published by Chicago Road Publishing LLC, the book covers those topics rarely available to the millions of families who have taken on the care of related children. In four sections the guidebook covers issues like:
  • legal decisions
  • social services
  • school issues
  • medical care
  • counseling
  • how to start a kincare group
  • children in the electronic world
  • financial planning
Written in an informal conversational style, we hope the book will be valuable to all of you who have faced or will face the difficulties of navigating helping systems on behalf of your new family. More information and updates should be on this little blog site in a few days. Keep checking back.

Hi Tita, I would like to hear more about your kinship work. I am a social worker and a graduate student who is doing some political organizing around kinship care in OH. Please feel free to email me at

I desperately need information about this. My niece is in jeopardy of going to foster care, when our family is a perfectly suitable, loving, home! She knows us and loves us. How can we fight for her and for us?
