What a great experience this outreach has been for both the book, A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children, and the newsletter Kinship Care Notes. As we work to revise mailing lists and answer requests to be included, we are learning that kinship family not only means grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and older siblings and really good family friends, but also the working community in Kinship Care – the social workers, the area aging representatives, the YM/WCA and Salvation Army committees, the legal aid representatives anxious to provide accurate information to mind-boggling complications of some kinship care situations. Your responses to the most recent Kinship Care Notes e-mail newsletter is downright wonderful.
The next Kinship Care Notes will be sent next week with legislative news, contacts and little informational pieces from A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children.
By the way, anyone interested can check out the book at or at booksellers or . Mid-Michigan folks can buy a copy at either Schuler’s Independent Book Stores in Lansing area.
Any information you may want to share in the newsletters can be sent to
I will try hard to keep the blogs more current. There is so much to share with this very special community. In the meantime, keep summering.
